THE START…..

Nina Flaaseth (42) is currently living in Hamar, but has grown all the way to a small farm in Løten on Hedemark. Here you could smell the cows, the sound of the tractor, and the sight of fields and meadows – so you can say that it is not surprising that the approach to the country’s soul came in childhood. 

Nina started with torads, accordions, and keys in her childhood, and this has followed her since. She has always been fond of singing, but only in adulthood it became a reality to act as a vocalist and she has heard many praise words for her distinctive and comfortable voice. It was soon clear which genre was closest to her heart. She often sat in the children and adolescents with the cassette player, and listened and sang to country music – an genre who has followed her for years.

Since Nina chose the choir and accordion in her childhood, she started playing old-fashioned, with different groupings before starting band-music to play dance music, and it’s only in the last 15 years that focus on pure trad.country became a reality and as she has a great love and passion for. She has extensive experience in several genres, and has played for dance, concerts at festivals (Country Festival in Seljord, Country Music Festival Vinstra, Søderslättts Countryfestival in Malmö – Sweden, Lida Country Festival v / Stockholm, etc.) and many other small and major scenes at home and abroad for a number of years.

Before Nina introduced herself as soloist in 2015, she also had the pleasure of performing with several international artists, including Bo Porter from Austin Texas / Usa, Swedish Don Redmon and Rockabilly Band Buckerfield from Sweden. Participations in the competition context, both NM and DM with very good placements (see # 1.post in DM), and in 2010 her country band participated at the SjøormCountry – Countryfestival in Seljord where it became a great 2nd place!

Nina now travels on big and small scenes at home and abroad with her own country band, to the praise of organizers and audiences. So if you want to book an artist whose distinctive voice, its formality, and carry a band that sounds just the way a real traditional country should sound, then you should not hesitate to contact!
