Celtic Connections 2020

The leading act of the Nordic fiddle scene, Frigg features the premier talents of a generation of Finnish folk musicians. Renowned the world over, the group draws influence from their homeland alongside those from their extensive travels – joyfully fusing Nordic and bluegrass flavours to create their own signature; Nordgrass. Tight interplay between four violins, with mandolin, cittern, guitar and contrabass, is spiced with a sparkling, high-energy stage show – presenting an outstanding display of richly exultant virtuosity on all fronts.

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners in 2018, Irish/Manx quintet Ímar are amongst Glasgow’s hottest folk property. Unleashed during Celtic Connections 2016, their debut video, L’Air Mignonne, was a viral smash, viewed in excess of 400,000 times – whilst their first year tour credits included the opening set at that year’s Cambridge Folk Festival (technically, the band’s first billed gig – a plaudit surely amongst as rare as they come) and headlining a stage at Belgium’s Dranouter Festival just a week later.
