Never miss another 'Frigg (Finland)' show

Frigg (Finland)

One of the world's finest fiddle bands embark on an eagerly awaited first tour of the UK in January 2013.

Promising audiences "a hair-raising, voice-losing, heart-burstingly beautiful gig full of traditional Finnish tunes with Norwegian detours", Frigg kick start their debut UK tour showcasing their lively new CD Polka V.

In 2004, American folk music magazine Sing Out! reviewed Frigg's debut album, exalting them as "The second coming of JPP", a reference to the legendary Finnish group that for 20 years had carried the torch for Nordic string bands. Now, with five successful albums, a folk music "Album of the Year" nomination and 'Top of the World' features in Songlines magazine, Frigg have firmly established themselves as the leading act on the Nordic scene.
