Ambos Album Release
our_way_album_cover.jpg
Our Way, Ambos' first album release, took place during their return engagement at the John Arcand Fiddle Fest on Friday, August 12, 2011. The album was produced by Trent Bruner, with musical arrangements by Trent Bruner. Silje and Hogne Midtbø Vevle and Una Anine O'Keeffe.

What is unique about this debut album is that Silje and Hogne are accompanied by some of Western Canada’s best accompanists for fiddle music, meaning that a meeting of two distinct musical cultures takes place. This leads to some special music moments throughout the album. The backup musicians assisting them on their debut album are also soloists in their own right, as well as recognized accompanists in the Canadian fiddle scene:

Trent Bruner Piano, keyboards, feet
Clinton Pelletier Acoustic Guitars
David Barber Banjo, Electric Guitar
Everett Larson Keyboard Accordion
Dean Kushneryk Drums

along with special guest fiddler Hannah Moira Midtbø-Bruner

This album was made possible through the efforts of Wes and Sharon Friesen from Keyteck Studios in Hague, Saskatchewan, Canada. We thank them for their belief in this project and for their kind and generous support to this effort. (Contact Keyteck Studios: +1-306-225-4629  E-mail - keyteck(@)sasktel.net)
