FRIGG – Music from Finland

Call in your reservations for our April 21 show with Frigg to 401-725-9272.

Frigg has been conquering the world with a fusion of western folk music styles, leaning strongly towards Nordic folk music, for which the world music media has coined the term "nordgrass" referring to the bluegrass influences of the group. The tight interplay of four violins, string instruments and contrabass, fine-tuned to perfection and spiced with sparkling, humorous live energy has made an impact on listeners all over the world. Apart from relentless touring in Europe, Frigg has done seven North American tours, including a long list of prominent festivals. Frigg has released eight albums. "Polka V," from 2012, was chosen the folk music record of the year and was nominated for a Teosto Prize in Finland. The world music publication Songlines has singled out two of the group’s albums for its “Top of the World” chart. In 2017, the eighth album by Frigg, "Frost on Fiddles," was released. The originally Finnish-Norwegian group has now become wholly Finnish, but Nordic influences remain strong. The delicate and beautiful Scandinavian language has been dipped in BBQ sauce and it is being served fresh with pálinka, to be enjoyed in good company!
