Henry Cole is off on his bike again this time riding some 4000Km on a Scandinavian adventure through Norway, Sweden, Southern Lapland and Finland. Henry sets out from Oslo in search of the best mountain riding on the planet through the Fjords of Norway. He also checks out some of the finest hotels and attractions including base jumping in Lisaboten, the annual extreme sports festival in Voss and the world famous Landscape Hotel. Henry also explores Bergen and Balastrade and attempts to try some of the traditional cuisine, boiled sheep’s head. But by the end of this first show Henry is way behind schedule and hasn’t quite left Norway! At last Henry is leaving Norway but before he does he pops into Hell, a small village just outside Trondheim to meet Hell's most famous resident Miss Universe 1990. Then at last into Sweden and he immediately delights in the quite incredible Swedish roads.
This new release is the second volume in Delphian Records’ monumental collaboration with the European Music Archaeology Project. The series explores the earliest known music from Scandanavia. Together with partners from ten European countries, the European Music Archaeology Project has researched and brought to life ancient music from 40,000 BC to present day. The group will hold a series of international exhibitions, which will allow the public to more fully understand the crucial role that music played in ancient societies. This album includes songs improvised on Viking instruments, as well as notated songs from the earliest centuries of Christianity in Scandinavia.
