SLOFolks Presents: Fru Skagerrak

Saturday January 18th @ 6:30pm - 10:00pm

The music of Fru Skager­rak takes you on a jour­ney through Scan­di­navia; from low­lands to moun­tains, from slow airs to live­ly polkas, in major and in minor, and every­thing in between. Fru Skager­rak- Lady Skager­rak” – are three mas­ter musi­cians – one from each Scan­di­na­vian coun­try: Maja Kjær Jacob­sen from Den­mark, Elise Wes­sel Hil­drum from Nor­way and Anna Lind­blad from Sweden.

In 2011, these three glo­be­trot­ting musi­cians met for the first time at Tøn­der Fes­ti­val, Denmark’s biggest Folk Fes­ti­val, in a roar­ing ses­sion that had engulfed the back­stage bar. Through the may­hem of tunes you could feel a cer­tain Scan­di­na­vian groove, and in that moment the con­nec­tion between these three fid­dlers was clear. After meet­ing at Tøn­der Fes­ti­val for three con­sec­u­tive years, Fru Skager­rak final­ly saw the light of day in August 2014. The trio brings togeth­er the diverse tra­di­tions from each of their home­lands, which sur­round the Skager­rak strait. Through a reper­toire of tra­di­tion­al tunes, new com­po­si­tions, and songs in their respec­tive lan­guages, they express their kin­ship and love of their shared her­itage. The result is an explo­sion of the sounds that exist in Scan­di­na­vian music today.
