“The band flies, in a mix of traditional and their own tunes, all shapely, ingenious and delivered with acute mastery and massive swing and energy.” --- Andrew Cronshaw, fRoots
We are thrilled to announce a brand new addition to our season: the seven member Finnish band Frigg will be making its first appearance on the Lane Series, and we know our trad/folk/fiddle audience will love them. Frigg has been conquering the world with a fusion of traditional western folk music styles for which the world music media has coined the term Nordgrass. The tight interplay of four violins, bass, guitar, mandolin, cittern, and bagpipes is fine-tuned to perfection and spiced with sparkling, humorous energy. Frequent festival performers at Celtic Connections, Cambridge Folk Festival, Mundial Montreal, and WOMADelaide, they have recently released their eighth album and will be highlighting new material on their US tour this spring. If you loved the Nordic Fiddler’s Bloc, or fiddle based folk music like Còig or Le Vent Du Nord, you will love Frigg!
