Agnes Buen Garnås has grown up with traditional music and song. Since she was a teenager she has worked tirelessly to gain recognition for older singers possessing invaluable knowledge of their traditions. She has received inspiration from singers from many different areas of the country through her work. Agnes has concertized throughout Norway and abroad, as a soloist and together with singers and musicians from many different genres. She has recorded twenty albums, including "Rosensfole" with Jan Garbarek Agnes also performs in "Klangfugl", an innovative educational project for children up to 3 years old. Agnes performs in three touring concert programs - "The Dream Song (Draumkvedet)" with organ and hardingfele improvisations by Inger Lise Ulsrud and Knut Buen, "Tonemesse - Sacred Services with Material from the Notebooks of Ludwig Lindemann" and "Ættesong and Meisterspel - Ancestral Songs and Virtuoso Playing". Teaching at courses and seminars is an equally large part of Agnes's work. More recently Agnes has worked much with stev (traditional songs) and older folk songs. Agnes is a coeditor of the songbooks "54 viser og stev frå Øst-Telemark (54 Traditional Songs from East Telemark)" and "Ei vise vil eg kveda (A Song Will I Sing)".
