Artist Profiles: Bäsk


Bäsk was a brilliant acoustic trio of three Swedish masters: Jonas Simonson on flute; Sten Källman on saxes and percussion; and fiddler Hans Kennemark.

Bäsk brought fresh arrangements to the acoustic trio sound, taking melodies designed for solo fiddle and arranging them for a trio. The instrumentation changed from fiddle-flute-soprano saxophone to fiddle backed by bass and baritone sax.
