”Some groups have a unique interplay. It’s like Fromseier Hockings are privy to something what we aren’t: a passage to a musical dimension reserved for spouses and family. It need not be described, just listen”.
Ditte Fromseier and Sigurd Hockings met in the Copenhagen folk-session scene at the beginning the century while they were still both students. They were immediately attracted to one an others powerful musical nerve and energy.
Soon after they started their first band and have since then played together in numerous constellations. In 2010 they were invited to play at the North Atlantic Fiddle Convention in Scotland as a duo and Fromseier-Hockings was a reality. They realised that the duo format was an outstanding way to challenge themselves and to create new original music.
Since then they have toured worldwide and have developed an extremely rare natural intimacy in their music.
Daniel (guitar) and Paddy (mandolin) have been best mates and musical collaboraters since they moved down from Newcastle and Adelaide in 2011. both keeping busy with their respective musical ventures, they take time to make their own style of contemporary Bluegrass mixed in with folk, country and rock. Through the years that they have been playing as a duo, Daniel and Paddy have made a strong musical connection and their friendship transcends through their performance.
