Never miss another 'Frigg (Finland)' show
Celtic Connections: 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.
Hot fiddles from cool Scandinavia! The fizzing Finnish septet Frigg are one of the world's finest fiddle bands with five successful albums to their name. Named after the Norse goddess of love and fertility, this freewheeling, feelgood septet have created their own captivating style of music – Nordgrass, fusing Nordic folk and American bluegrass. Drawing first and foremost on the folk music heritage of their homeland, their fjord and forest-imbued Nordic tunes are peppered with innovative infusions of world music styles from Celtic to Balkan and Americana, making for a truly distinctive, irrepressible and life-affirming sound.
