Folk Spot: Fionia Folk Brothers (DK)

Saturday 27. august - 18:30 - Klubscenen

Fionia Folk Brothers is the naughty kid in the classroom – always looking for trouble. Five of Denmark’s most experienced folk-musicians performing with a drive and a swing, making it impossible to sit still. The mixture of trained musicians and experienced fiddler’s gives a unique authority, and comes with a high level of technical abilities. So, release your inner wildness and hold onto your hats and glasses; it’s going to be a memorable experience with a high risk of being infected with the band’s mood, energy, and immediacy.

An export drive for seven Scandinavian bands and soloists starts on 26 and 27 August during this year’s Tønder Festival. Since 2012, Folk Spot Danmark has presented Danish folk/roots bands aiming for a wider audience, both nationally but in particular internationally. The drive is organised jointly by SPOT Festival and Tønder Festival, the ambition being to give a lift to Danish folk/roots-music at home and abroad. The SPOT Festival has years of experience exporting Danish music, while Tønder Festival’s expertise lies in the folk and roots genre. Once again this year, eight Nordic folk/roots groups have been chosen by the international jury.
