Synger hvem som helst på norsk?

Hi all,

I'm looking for Norwegian singer-songwriters (along the lines of Jim Croce, Vladimir Vysotsky, Gordon Lightfoot, etc.) that actually perform in Norwegian rather than English. Listening to Vysotsky, Bulat Okudzhava, and others that perform mostly with just a guitar and vocals helped me a great deal when learning Russian. I've poked around some but am having real problems finding anything actually in Norwegian.

If anyone could supply a few names for me to look into, I'd really appreciate it.

You can check out Siri Nilsen, Stein Torleif Bjella and Tommy Tokyo, or go old school with Erik Bye, Lillebjørn Nilsen or Ole Paus. Not all acoustic guitar, but clear vocals.

While not genre specific, here's an old music thread where I've linked quite a few Norwegian songs.

Tusen takk! And if there's a stronger way to express that, please pretend I wrote that instead. :-) This is exactly what I was looking for.

Bare hyggelig! :)

Glad to hear that, as music can be a bit hit-and-miss.

+1 for Siri Nilsen, especially for Alle snakker sant.

You should add Oslo Ess to the music thread list.
