cd cover Fru Skagerrak
Fru Skagerrak (Go Danish Folk)
cdRoots Code: go-0216

This trio of women from Denmark, Sweden and Norway call their music 'Scandinavian Raw Folk,' and their repertoire consiste of music and songs chosen among the rich music and song traditions of Scandinavia, as well the members' original compositions. They play fiddles and 5 -stringed fiddle, recorder and vocals.

The name means "Lady Skagerrak" - "Skagerrak" is the sea that connects Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and it has had a great influence on Scandinavia's shared history and culture. The love of the music from around Skagerrak brought these three master musicians together, and they want to express their kinship through their music.

The trio first played together in sessions at the backstage bar at Denmark's biggest folk festival, Tønder Festival, in 2011. After three more Tønder Festivals and numerous sessions, Fru Skagerrak was officially formed in August 2014.

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
