The Scandinavian folk duo Fromseier Hockings come from the tiny village Øksendrup in Denmark where they also run a small organic orchard and cidery. Their stunning tunes and song are inspired by their surrondings and the people in them. Voices and instruments intertwine, groove and move!

Ditte Fromseier and Sigurd Hockings met in the Copenhagen folk-session scene in the beginning of this century while they were still both students. They were immediately attracted by each others powerful musical nerve and energy. 

Soon after they started their first band and have since then played together in numerous constellations. In 2010 they were invited to play at the North Atlantic Fiddle Convention in Scotland as a duo and Fromseier Hockings was a reality. They realised that the duo format was an outstanding way to challenge themselves and to create new original music. 

 

Since then they have toured worldwide and have delevoped an extremely rare natural intimacy in their music. 

 

Fromseier Hockings explore every aspect of the duo format and with their performances they invite the audience into their musical world with great sensitivity and warmth.

 

Fromseier Hockings have received numerous awards. Among them a Danish Music Award 2015 and the prestiguous ” Live Act of the Year 2015” from the Musicians Union.

Duoen Fromseier Hockings kommer fra den lille fynske landsby Øksendrup hvor de også driver en økologisk æbleplantage og et cideri. Deres smukke melodier og sange er inspireret af deres omgivelser og folkene i dem. Stemmer og instrumenter blandes i et personligt univers med masser af groove og koncerten er bundet sammen af finurlige historier om musikken.

Ditte Fromseier and Sigurd Hockings mødte hinanden en sen aften på den Københavnske folkscene i år 2003 imens de begge stadig var studerende. De var umiddelbart tiltrukket af hinandens stærke drive og intense musikalske energi. 

Snart efter startede de deres første fælles band og siden da har de spillet sammen I mange forskellige konstellationer. I 2010 blev de inviteret til at optræde som duo på North Atlantic Fiddle Convention I Skotland og duoen Fromseier Hockings var en realitet. De fandt hurtigt at duoformatet for dem var en fantastisk måde at udfordre sig selv musikalsk og til at skabe ny musik I fællesskab. 

 

Fromseier Hockings har turneret over det meste af verden og opbygget en sjælden intimitet i deres musik. De optræder i et levende, impulsivt og virtuøst legende sammenspil.
