He came back to Norway in 2002 and now lives just outside Oslo. Frank Kvinge released his fi rst CD on Losen Records in January 2011. Arctic Skyway (LOS 103-2).
Synnøve Rognlien studied folk music at Telemark High School.

Synnøve and Frank met a few years ago by chance at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio. This meeting led to several concerts as the Kvinge & Rognlien duo. Frank recorded some of these concerts and it is the best tracks from these concerts that we hear on this CD. In addition, you will hear three studio recordings.
