Uk Touring presents

FRIGG (Finland)

Thu 08 Nov, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £16 (£15 concessions) , approx running time: 110mins (including interval)

A leading act on the Nordic music scene, Frigg has dazzled Rainforest World Music Festival, WOMADelaide, 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 swirling blizzard of jigs, reels, polskas & bluegrass inventions. Scandomusic as good as it gets! New album Frost on Fiddles www.frigg.fi

‘sixty five minutes of astonishing music that covers all the bases’ – **** RnR magazine
