Fiddlers’ Bid with Frigg
Celtic Connections: It’s been far too long since Shetland’s Fiddlers’ Bid enthralled and regaled their festival fans, but now they’re back - and with a vengeance!
About Fiddlers’ Bid with Frigg
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
In the shape of Finnish fellow seven-piece Frigg, similarly led by four contemporary champions of proud native fiddle traditions.
Having formed playing lunchtime sessions at high school, Fiddlers’ Bid share a bond going back more than 25 years - and a far older one with their islands’ unique musical heritage. Piano, clarsach, guitar and bass back up the frontline bowmen, in a wholly intoxicating mix of Nordic-hued Shetland tunes ancient and brand-new, laced with Québécois and east European flavours.
Reprising their monumental encounter at last summer’s Kaustinen Folk Festival, on Frigg’s likewise fiddle-rich home turf, both bands will play individually, with Frigg showcasing new eighth album Frost on Fiddles – another cornucopia of richly exultant virtuosity, and the band’s third Songlines Top of the World selection - before a roof-raising joint finale.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fiddlers’ Bid with Frigg are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
