Fromseier & Hockings • Denmark

Fromseier Hockings perform as a lively, impulsive and playful duo full of virtuosity. They have toured together worldwide and have through many years of partnership developed a unique intimacy in their music. Old swingy traditional tunes and songs are combined with Ditte and Sigurd’s own compositions.

Fromseier Hockings explore every aspect of the duo format and with their performances invite the audience into their musical world with a sensitivity and warmth that invites both dance and reflection.

Ditte Fromseier started her musical life at the age of 4 on the little Danish island of Bornholm. Since then she has played her way around the world and has trained as both a classical and folk violinist.

Sigurd Hockings is one of the most skilful and versatile folk guitarists in Denmark. Inspiration for his very individual and accomplished playing style has come largely from both Scandinavian and Celtic music traditions.
