Frigg (from Finland)
Frigg, a leading act on the Nordic scene, played their first UK tours in 2013. They’ve dazzled Celtic Connections, The Scots Fiddle Festival, Fiddles On Fire, Cambridge Folk Festival - now this international fiddle septet is back for more! There’s a steadily growing appreciation of their blistering Nordgrass, a mix of Nordic folk and American bluegrass. Energy, fun, humour and interaction are Frigg’s most important virtues on any gig. Scandomusic as good as it gets! Possibly the most exciting, uplifting, gut-wrenching & hip-twitching band in the Northern Hemisphere. Don’t miss this blizzard of jigs, reels & bluegrass inventions.
‘Embracing everything from Nashville to Nordkapp, Salzburg to Stornoway, this Helsinki septet manages to sound like a polka band, a rock group, or a Riverdance ensemble, while remaining purely acoustic and firmly string-powered. Four fiddles, an upright bass, guitars and mandos: that's all there is, but Frigg fill the air, live or on CD.’ Alex Monaghan, Folkworld
