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.
