Lillebror Vasaasen: Tæmme Trøll

From the mid-90s Frode Haltli played the accordion in the band of Norwegian 2-row accordion legend Lillebror Vasaasen for some years. They toured a lot in Norway and Denmark, always travelling in Lillebror’s band van. The album “Tæmme Trøll” (Taming Trolls) features a blend of traditional dance tunes and new composed dance tunes by Lillebror Vasaasen, as well as a couple of more lyrical tunes. Some of the tracks were re-issued on the album Ragtimepolka released on Tylde & Co. in 2010.
