Folk Spot: Flach | Dillner (DK, SE)

PaFlach | Dillner is a newly made nordic string duo with members who can also be recognized from bands such as Tailcoat, Trio Törn, Penny Pascal, Mynsterland and Northern Resonance. The duo consists of Riksspelman Petrus Dillner (SE) on Nyckelharpa and the DMA-winning Henriette Ambæk Flach (DK) on fiddle and hardingfele. They have a never-say-no rule when they are arranging their music and are always open for new ideas, playing both original and traditional music.

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.
