Musiker (Karl Skaarup)

Karl Skaarup was born in 1924 in Koldby, Thy, in the north-western part of Denmark, and that is where he still lives. At the early age of four Karl played his first gig on his one-row button accordion. He later progressed to two-row and five-row accordions.

These days, when not gigging on his own, Karl plays in one of three lineups: in Skaarup’s Four alongside Kenneth Krak, Esben Wolf, and Malene D. Beck; in Karl Skaarup’s Trio with Jack Jacobsen and Gitte Thofte; or, as in the tracks on his new CD, in duet with the young fiddler, Kristian Bugge. In October 2008, a grand party was thrown in his honor at the Snedsted Inn celebrating his 80th anniversary as an active folk musician! And most recently, in March 2009, Karl Skaarup was honored at the Danish Music Awards/ Folk-ceremony, where he received the annual »Mediator Award«.
