VALFART plays captivating music - from heartfelt and beautiful to energetic and virtuosic... "There is something bright and playful about the music, like the Nordic summer. The Hardingfelen with echoes from the , Norwegian mountains commented by chirping flute voice - the bright vocals accompanied by robust accordion and percussion, which drive and hold the music together and create air." (Quote from a review of Valfart's acclaimed CD.) The repertoire includes Nordic folk tunes, new and old shows and music that draws threads across the Atlantic to blue grass, as well as to the Balkans and the Middle East. At church concerts also Nordic hymns. The repertoire is, in addition to music composed and arranged by Christian Risgaard, also text and music by Jeppe Aakjær and Carl Nielsen.
