Danish duo Andreas Tophøj and Rune Barslund perform with violin, accordion and viola. The accomplished duo has its roots in Jutland, Denmark, and emerged from the folk scene formed around the Academy of Music in Odense. The sound of the duo is closely linked to the Danish folk tradition, but the two young musicians also offer a new interpretation of Danish folk influenced by music from various countries and traditions. 

They draw on a wide range of inspiration gained from residing in Ireland and the US and from encounters with Celtic and Nordic musicians and musical cultures. Accordingly, their repertoire is based on a compelling musical melting pot and mainly features original compositions. Andreas and Rune are also known from other bands such as ZAR, Kasír and Basco. Andreas and Rune are both very experienced musicians mastering a high musical and technical level as well as captivating ensemble playing.
