Jensen, Bugge & Høirup is a Danish trio playing traditional as well as newly composed music, arranged for accordion, violin, guitar & vocals.
Mette and Kristian has known each other since their childhood, and in 2001, while studying at the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music in Odense, they formed the duo Jensen & Bugge, to work with traditional Danish music and dancing.
In 2010 they met up with Morten Alfred at the famous Danish Tønder Festival, and since then they have performed and recorded together under the name ‘Jensen & Bugge + Høirup’:
“We have toured all over Denmark, and in Germany, Norway, The Faroe Islands and Canada, and we have now decided to make this a independent trio, keeping up our work with not only the traditional Danish music, but also music that we compose our self.
We play for concert as well as for traditional dancing, and we specialize in arranging the music so that it works great for both dancing and listening. That way you never go in vain, when you meet up to hear us.
But enough about us, now we’ll welcome you warmly to this new website og ours.
Please do take a little time to explore this site, watch our great videos, listen to the music, and please let us know if you are missing something, or if you just want to get in touch. We are looking forward to meet you very soon at a venue, a festival or on a dance floor somewhere”.
P.S. The duo Jensen & Bugge continues to play, of cause, while the trio is living its own life…
