More really interesting projects have come to the studio to record with Garth Hudson. Norwegian treasure, Hallvard Bjørgum came in for a few days. Last time he recorded with Garth was 13 years ago in Oslo. He plays the traditional Norwegian fiddle where he is a major musical figure. With Hallvard was Ed Kaercher, who sang for a bit on tour with The Band and performed for many years with Rick Danko. Ed is contributing a song on Hallvard's upcoming album. It's great to work with reunited old friends.
