Description

Nominated Scottish Folk Band of the Year. Scottish Trad Music Awards 2011 Presenting their second album of new Nu Nordic music, Fribo have written most of the material recorder here, using the meeting place between Celtic, Scandinavian and American music as their starting point.. This is a new music that has a fresh and exciting sound, where you can hear within one melody or track, a combination between the different styles each musician brings to the band. Styles which work together to create a whole sound that is strong and cohesive. This album is also one of transition and history, it is a document of 4 years spent learning about cultures, the results of time spent playing in many places, interesting travels and good times. All of this has given the band inspiration to write original music rooted in three cultures yet creating a new sound which has a powerful new heartbeat. It is a record of Sarah-Jane's pioneering work with Fribo and also a farewell, the album highlights the arrival of Edinburgh-born Hannah with her interests and studies in American music bringing the band new ideas from across the Atlantic. Most of all it is an album of music we have enjoyed writing and love to play, so we hope the fun times, the amazing experiences and beauty of our various cultures can be found here. 'HAPP' is an old word meaning 'In good health' from the Norn language which was once spoken both in Scotland and the Nordic countries, Fribo is in good health and optimistic that in these changing times we can still find the way to the old north... Line Up: Anne Sofie Linge Valdal (Nor) Vocals & Flutes, Hannah Read (Sco) Fiddle & Vocals, Magnus Lundmark (Swe) Drums & Percussion, Ewan MacPherson (UK) Guitars, Vocals, Jaw Harp, Mandolin, Bass.
