FRIGG (FINLAND)

A leading act on the Nordic scene, Frigg have dazzled Celtic Connections, The Scots Fiddle Festival, Fiddles On Fire, Cambridge Folk Festival, Orkney Folk Festival and many more.

There's an enthusiastic appreciation of their fiddle-founded Nordgrass sound - a mix of Nordic folk and bluegrass. Possibly the most exciting, uplifting, gut-wrenching and hip-twitching band in the Northern Hemisphere.

Don’t miss this blizzard of jigs, reels and bluegrass inventions. Scandomusic as good as it gets!

"Scandinavian sultans of string" Tony Hillier, The Weekend Australian

"A wonderful outfit – seven artists and when they combine their talents the music is stunning. Amazing - I can't help but sit back and throw up my arms in admiration – fabulous stuff" Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

"You can put me down as a fan" Simon Nicol, Fairport Convention

"Great fun! Great bounce!" Mark Radcliffe, The Folk Show (R2)

"really hot" Spencer Leigh, BBC Radio Merseyside

"the tunes are a non-stop whirlwind" Phil Brown, The Drift, BBC Radio Lancs

Want to learn to play like Frigg? Join their Finnish Fiddle Tunes Workshop before the show at 5pm on November 22.
