Höglin Baker is a newgrass, folk and country trio comprising of Gavin Baker, who plays guitar and sings, Stefan Höglin who plays the 5-string banjo and Dave Baker who plays mandolin and sings. They are based in Kongsberg, Niorway and Denmark, Australia.

They play a nontraditional style of newgrass music, that is to say using bluegrass instruments but not playing strictly bluegrass. They are inspired by folks like John Hartford, Skip Spence, The Grateful Dead, old timey string bands from near 100 years ago and pretty much every country and country rock band they have ever heard and loved.

They released a debut album: Once Upon in October 2016 on Kongsberg based Big Pink Records. Their seond album Höglin Baker's Old Timey Mixture is to be released in the autumn of 2017.

Both Gavin and Stefan have been active in rock bands in the past: Stefan played keyboards in Euroboys and Gavin is a member of English post rock band Billy Mahonie. This is however their first venture into acoustic country music. Both also play rock music in bands in the Kongsberg area.

 

På Norsk:

Höglin Baker. Newgrass og Country-musikk duo.
Gavin Baker og Stefan Høglin spiller Newgrass og country-musikk på banjo og akustisk gitar. De ble en duo i mars 2015, og har spilt konserter i Kongsberg der de begge bor. Ingen av dem er norske derimot; Stefan er fra Sverige og Gavin er fra England. I tillegg får de av og til forsterkninger i form av Gavins far, David Baker, på mandolin og vokal.
Begge to har bakgrunn fra alternativ-rocken; Stefan spilte keyboard i Euroboys, og Gavin var medlem av det engelske post-rock-bandet Billy Mahonie. Men dette er første gangen de prøver seg på akustisk country-musikk. Begge har også andre band-prosjekter på gang i Kongsberg.
De spiller utradisjonell Newgrass, det vil si at de bruker bluegrass-instrumenter, men uten å spille bluegrassmusikk. De finner inspirasjon hos musikere som John Hartford, Skip Spence, The Grateful Dead i tillegg til alt av country og country-rock som de har hørt og likt.
Låtmaterialet står de selv for, og arbeidet med et debut-album er godt i gang
