36 Intimate Photos That Document Daily Life of the Danish Folk-Band Orføvs in the 1970s

These intimate photographs from Alf, a member of the Danish folk-band Orføvs that documented daily life of this band in its early days.
“Band started in late 1976 and was very active till the late 80's - after that Orføvs plays mostly at family gathering, but still has a faithful fan-base that enjoys the occational public gigs and listening to old tapes. The members are the same through all the years. Music spans traditional Danish and Swedish fiddle-tunes, Cajun, Swing and folk-rock.”
Orføvs on April 2, 1977
