Huldrelokkk - the wood nymph's beckoning call, is an all-female trio playing acoustic folk music from three Scandinavian countries: Norway, Sweden and Denmark as well as their own material.
Three angelic voices coupled with two virtuoso fiddles and a groovy rhythmic guitar, they celebrated their world premiere concert to an enthusiastic Berlin audience in late 2009.

Since then the trio has been giving sell-out concerts all over Europe and Scandinavia.

The Debut CD „Trolldans“ (Westpark Music) of this exceptional trio was released in October 2011 in Europe, and has gotten rave reviews. The new live CD i levende live captures the unforgettable live atmosphere of a Huldrelokkk concert, and was recorded during tours in Gemany  2013  and 2014.

The folk CD of the year!” Rocktimes, Germany 2011

"Grooving folk guitar, dynamic fiddles and powerful harmony vocals in different Nordic languages...one of the freshest sounds appearing on the Nordic folk horizon."  Lira, Sweden 2011

 “The Swedish-Norwegian-Danish women’s trio played a mighty concert! The three young women play keyed fiddle, violin and guitar – particularly delightful was the way the Norwegian guitarist let her instrument sing, ring and hum – a definitive troll-guitar! The group’s tight vocal harmonies are a real feast for the ears – and to cap it all you can dance to the music too!” Rootszone, Denmark 2014

“… a female trio which really makes you sit up and take notice …
The dreamy melodies from the fiddle and Nyckelharpa (a medieval instrument rarely seen nowadays) coupled with the strong and sensitive guitar of Kerstin Blodig form the musical fundament of this band, often rounded off with beautiful three-part vocal harmonies.
Solo songs and a-capella further supplemented this sublime performance, which completely enthralled the audience. Frenetic and lengthy bursts of applause between the individual pieces were proof that even folk music in a language which only a few people here understand - can be intensely moving and entertaining.” Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung, Germany 2010



"Ridiculously good - these three female musicians dressed as magical beings from a mythological world .... Scandinavian holidays in the form of magnificent music, which these three have in their souls…" Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung, Germany 2015

Mia Gunberg Ådin (SE)

vocals, fiddle, nykkelharpa

With a stage career spanning three decades she is undoubtedly one of the great tradition-bearers of the fiddle music of her homeland Bohuslän, an area of Sweden which borders on Norway. Her expressive fiddle- and Nyckelharpa playing and her beautiful traditional singing style have had a decisive influence on many of her live projects: theatre music, the Celtic band Woodbine, Hemållt and of course the internationally successful group Blå fålen of which she is a founding member. She nourishes her strong interest in historic traditions by listening to and recording the few remaining players of local folk music. In doing so, she herself assumes a place in their ranks, ensuring the longevity of this important cultural heritage.
She has been awarded various prizes in the course of her career including e.g. the Tanums Kommuns Kulturstipendium. In 2009 she received the coveted Swedish folk music award Zornmärket and in 2010 the Bohusläningens Kulturpris (with Hemållt). She has recently won the Tanums Cultural Prize in autumn 2014.
