The Norwegian singer/songwriter/guitarist Kerstin Blodig presents her debut-album on Stockfisch.   The recordings took place in Solling – in a clearing in one of Germany's largest forest areas.   The rich natural atmosphere – including birdsong and sounds from the vegetation – fits wonderfully to Kerstin's haunting Norwegian folk ballads, her crystal clear expressive mezzosoprano and her modern virtuoso guitar playing.

“Out of the Woods” is a collection of favourite songs about the loveliest season of all – springtime, featuring re-recorded repertoire from formerly released CDs as well as brand-new material – including three spontaneous improvisations, where the musicians sat around the microphones and just started to play …

Opulently modern, minimalistically folky, bizarre and beautiful, passionate and pure, melancholy and dreamy, soulful and sad, tongue-in-cheek and humorous – Kerstin Blodig takes us on a musical journey from Norway across the North Sea to Scotland and back home again to the land of the trolls, elf kings and wood nymphs, of breath-taking landscapes and mysterious myths.
