This duo combines the strong tradition of storytelling with various sounds from the hardanger fiddle. The aim is to make the instrument and the voice equally important in communicating the story. Inspired by how the old storytellers improvised their performances, the duo always make sure to leave some spaces open for improvisation and interaction with their audience.

Sandvaer/Brodal is currently preparing a performance for kids together with the renowned british stage artist Dominic Kelly. The performance, called Veslefrikk will have its premiere at the Norwegian hub for folk music and folk dance in november 2016.

Before that time the duo is going on a tour with a performance for adults, named Asbjoernsen & Moe for voksne.
