For fiddle players the world over, Norway’s Annbjørg Lien needs no introduction. Since recording her first album as a teenager she has developed a stellar reputation for her work celebrating and championing the hardanger fiddle tradition. In particular, she is recognized for relentlessly breaking new ground and exploring the possibilities of Norwegian folk music through collaborations with other folk musicians as well as with others representing different genres and nationalities. From winning multiple awards at the Norwegian National Contest for Traditional Music, to working with Norway’s Bukkene Bruse, Ireland’s The Chieftains, America’s Bruce Molsky, and the international, supergroup, String Sisters, Lien’s musical journey has been one characterized by curiosity and courage. It should be no surprise then that this hungry learner would find herself drawn to the burgeoning opportunities for practice-based and practice-led research for folk musicians available within higher education institutions and wanting to pursue her voyage of discovery within the framework of a doctoral programme.
