The leading act of the Nordic fiddle scene, Frigg features the premier talents of a generation of Finnish folk musicians.
Renowned the world over, the group draws influence from their homeland alongside those from their extensive travels – joyfully fusing Nordic and bluegrass flavours to create their own signature: Nordgrass. Tight interplay between four violins, with mandolin, cittern, guitar and contrabass, is spiced with a sparkling, high-energy stage show – presenting an outstanding display of richly exultant virtuosity on all fronts.
A smash at many of the world’s major folk festivals – including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Rainforest World Music Festival, Celtic Connections and WOMADelaide – and throughout countless tours, the global world music media have also featured Frigg extensively. Their most recent album, Frost on Fiddles (2017) has added to their bursting mantle of accolades – including their third Songlines Top of the World selection.
Frigg features Alina Järvelä , Esko Järvelä, Tero Hyväluoma, Juho Kivivuori, Tommi Asplund, Ansi Salminen and Petri Prauda, in an enthralling union – Nordic musical mastery, with beautifully scenic detours.
