SARANAC LAKE, NY—Saturday, February 23 at 7:30 PM, BluSeed Studios presents an international musical treat with a trio of performers from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.
Fru Skagerrak presents a musical journey through Scandinavia: from lowlands to mountains, from slow airs to lively polkas, in major and in minor, and everything in between.
Known as Fru Skagerrak or “Lady Skagerrak” the band features Anna Lindblad (Sweden): vocalist/fiddle; Elise Wessel Hildrum (Norway): vocalist/fiddle, recorder, viola; and Maja Kjær Jacobsen (Denmark): vocalist/fiddle.
In 2011, these three globetrotting musicians met for the first time at Tønder Festival, Denmark’s biggest Folk Festival. After meeting at the festival for three consecutive years, Fru Skagerrak was born in 2014.The trio brings together the diverse traditions from each of the performer’s homelands, which surround the Skagerrak Strait.
Through a repertoire of traditional tunes, new compositions, and songs in their respective languages, the trio expresses their kinship and love of their shared heritage. The result is an explosion of the sounds that exist in Scandinavian music today.
