Inger Nielsen Sings Danish Folk Songs

Inger Nielsen Sings Danish Folk Songs

Inger Nielsen recorded this album in New York City in 1965. Urged by her boyfriend, folk musician and Folkways recording artist Peter La Farge, Inger sings eleven songs chosen from a Danish songbook her mother had sent to her. This recording is an ode to her homeland, with songs such as “Denmark in a Thousand Years” by well–known Danish composer Carl Nielsen to “Mads Doss,” a folk song sung in the Jutlandic dialect. B.G. Kornfeld accompanies her on guitar and banjo. La Farge has written the liner notes with tender affection.
