Frede EwertBorn: 1954 or 1955
In 1995, Ewert was the musical director of the Danish Eurovision pre-selection, leading the DR Musik Event Pop Orkester. Subsequently, he also conducted the winning song of the Danish heats, ‘Fra Mols til Skagen’ by singer Aud Wilken, in the Eurovision Song Contest final in Dublin. The idiosyncratic song, with the banjo dominating the minimalist instrumentation, pleased the juries and finished fifth.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Frede Ewert will be published on this website
