Vesselil is a new modern folk string trio from Denmark consisting of violin, viola, cello and vocals. The trio presents a versatile and elegant repertoire, a mixture of old Nordic folk songs, dance tunes, own compositions and elements of improvisation. The trio has a contagious love for exploring the possibilities and nuances of the stringed instruments and their vivid and creative arrangements transports you in and out of filmic sceneries, sizzling dance floors, open skies and warm embraces.
The name Vesselil, taken from an ancient Danish ballad, tells the story about the young woman Vesselil, who refuses to sell her dreams and ambitions for gold. With her integrity as inspiration, the trio communicates joy and melancholy and the vast borderland in between.
