about

A certain stillness lies within the music Elise Boeur and Michael Caplin make. It’s folk music, played with warmth and clarity, and it’s also the creation of two young musicians with respect for multiple traditions and the skill to borrow from them freely. Featuring Swedish and Norwegian folk tunes alongside and inside interpretations of early music and Caplin’s own compositions, the debut offering from this young Norwegian / Canadian instrumental duo is filled with a quiet and compelling kind of joy.

Canadian fiddler Elise Boeur and Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Michael Caplin met and recorded Sameus deep in the mountains of Telemark, while studying folk music in Rauland in the fall of 2012. The album took shape as the days grew shorter, and the final tracks were recorded by candlelight. On violin, hardingfele, cittern, låtmandola, pump organ, and nyckelharpa, the duo moves gracefully between styles to create something both new and timeless.
