“A hair-raising, voice-losing, heart-burstingly beautiful gig full of traditional Finnish tunes with Norwegian detours.” is an accurate description of one of Finland’s hottest musical exports, FRIGG. The sizzling septet have carved themselves a top notch in folk. Frost on Fiddles will be their eighth CD, following on from the acclaimed Polka V – Songlines’ Top of the World album, Folklandia’s Folk Album of the Year and nominated for the prestigious Teosto Prize awarded annually by Finnish composers – recognising that Frigg perform almost exclusively their own original tunes.
Named after the Norse goddess of love and fertility, this freewheeling, feelgood group have completed seven extensive tours of North America, together with tours of Australia, Japan, Germany, Austria, the Benelux countries, Scandinavia, appearances in Malaysia, Spain, Portugal, France and several tours of Switzerland. With an upcoming UK tour next month, there’s just one Southern date and it’s in Horsham! The Capitol Theatre will play host to this swirling blizzard of jigs, reels, polskas & bluegrass inventions, so what are you waiting for? Book your ticket today!
