Renowned the world over, Frigg have been conquering the folk and world music scenes for over 20 years. Featuring the crème de la crème of a generation of Finnish folk musicians, the group fuses its deep Nordic roots with western folk and bluegrass flavours to form Frigg’s unmistakable, unique sound – playfully coined ‘Nordgrass’.
The tight interplay between four violins, with mandolin, cittern, guitar and contrabass, is spiced with a sparkling, high-energy show and fine-tuned to perfection – making an impact on listeners across the globe.
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 music media have also featured Frigg extensively. Their most recent album, FRIXX (2020) has added to their bursting mantle of accolades – including no less than three Songlines Top of the World selections.
Frigg features Alina Järvelä , Esko Järvelä, Tero Hyväluoma, Juho Kivivuori, Tommi Asplund, Ansi Salminen and Petri Prauda, in an enthralling, virtuosic union. Nordic musical mastery, with beautifully scenic detours.

“Finland’s hottest fiddle band hits the ground running. gathering speed before disappearing over the horizon after sixty five minutes of astonishing music.” / R2
