Hot fiddles from cool Scandinavia

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 & 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 & hip-twitching band in the Northern Hemisphere. Don’t miss this blizzard of jigs, reels & bluegrass inventions. Scandomusic as good as it gets!

 

Frigg’s Finnish Fiddle Tunes workshop for all string players

For all string players, not just fiddlers! Band members offer a stirring string experience of Scandinavian tunes -  jigs, reels, polkas, schottisches, waltzes - taught by ear but with the offer of scores for future reference.

For next generation players, intermediate and established players. Classical, traditional, jazz and folk players all welcome!

Please note, workshop tickets only available when purchasing a ticket for the Frigg concert.
