In a nutshell

Norwegian artist Susanna reworks baroque songs, American folk and Joy Division with vocals, harp, accordion and fiddle.

Go on...

Susanna has never been one to shy away from the great questions in her music. With ‘Go Dig My Grave’, her 12th album, she explores historic musical gaps by combining music from the Great American Songbook and old English traditionals with baroque instrumentation and her own, characteristic vocal interpretations. Add some Henry Purcell, some Lou Reed, and Susanna’s own composition, and the unique complexity of Susanna’s artistry is evident: ‘Go Dig My Grave’ is a profoundly personal collection of dark songs with deep roots through centuries of American and European musical heritage.

The album marks Susanna’s return to her collaboration with Swiss baroque harp player Giovanna Pessi. Pessi first appeared alongside Susanna on the album ‘Sonata Mix Dwarf Cosmos’, released on Rune Grammofon in 2007, and played a major role on the critically acclaimed ECM album ‘If Grief Could Wait’, a deep-dive into the sorrow-stricken music of Henry Purcell, Leonard Cohen and Susanna herself. Live Giovanna Pessi and Susanna plays the new album ‘Go Dig My Grave’ and from their previous ‘If Grief Could Wait’, and at Rich Mix they are joined by Frode Haltli on accordion and Sarah-Jane Summers on fiddle.
