Jarnnetter (Ta:lik)

Two great poets from Lom: Tor Jonsson (1916–1951) and Olav Aukrust (1883–1929). Though their views of rural life were far apart, it held a great influence on them both. Tor Jonsson faced much hardship in his youth and came to be critical of the closely-knit rural society, while Olav Aukrust, a champion of religious and national causes, held a more positive view of rural communities, people and lifestyles. Differences notwithstanding, it is obvious from the titles and form of their poems that both drew inspiration from traditional music. We have set some of their poems to traditional tunes both old and recent, and included a few songs they might have heard at home.



Camilla Granlien is a folksinger living in Oslo. December 2005 she released the solo album "Begjær" ("Desire"). In these ballads people die from heartache, gamble away honor and faith, old lovers return, and people battle with trolls, giants, and gutless emperors. A common thread in all these ballads is desire. Desire for the beloved, for more power and wealth, and for new knowledge are, in other words, immortal and universal themes. Camilla is also a singer in the bands Skrekk, To Cast a Shadow and Camilla Granlien Band.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
