Fredrik Mikkelsen, born 1981 in Bergen, Norway.
Largely, he is an autodidact musician, apart from specializing in music during high school, which he claims gave him the fundamental tools to understand music and continue studying on his own accord. His musical career has brought him through a variety of genres, including traditional styles like balkan, klezmer, arabic and east african music.The latter years however, has been spent mainly with studying jazz of the swing era inspired by guitarists like Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian and Barney Kessel. Paralell though, he has been sampling the world bluegrass, american folk, and of course, the blues.
He maintains a solid technical proficiency on both the guitar and lap steel guitar, but his most interesting musical point is his lack of musical indoctrination, together with his ability to draw upon the different styles he has visited over the years, to create an innovative and personal sound.
