Magnus Wiik is a musician based in Rauland, Norway. Originally a guitarist, he is now in-demand on a multitude of instruments: banjo, mandolin, dobro, fiddle, pedal-steel guitar, Irish flute, piano, cello and double bass. Magnus cut his teeth on rock and metal in his teens, before finding his way into jazz and improvisation in high-school. During this time, he discovered Irish folk music and bluegrass, and fell head over heels in love with both traditions.
He has made more than ten albums as a leader and composer, as well as numerous albums as a sideman and session-musician. Additionally he records, produces, and mixes in his own studio on commission. In 2015 Magnus received Geir Digernes’ Memorial Prize for his work as a musician.
