Nils Økland is a Hardanger fiddle player from Norway. In spite of being associated with the traditional Norway folk music scene, on his 3 LPs ("Blå Harding", 1996; "Straum", 2000; "Bris", 2004) Nils writes all the tunes himself (unusual for the genre) and presents a distinctive style heavily influenced by free jazz.
