Duo Scandinavica was a three-year transatlantic project devoted to the Scandinavian American musical tradition. Its creators, Jim Nelson, formerly of Drammen, Norway, and Lori Ann Reinhall from Seattle, Washington, both have their roots in the Scandinavian immigration and strong ties to musical communities in Scandinavia and North America.
With the goal of preserving a pivotal selection of the musical treasure chest on both sides of the Atlantic, Duo Scandinavica performed in Norway, Sweden, Iceland and the United States. The project culminated in their CD recording, Emigrant, a presentation of traditional vocal and instrumental music from the major period of emigration.
