      3 delightful women playing unusual music (to a southerner from the United States) very well. What's not to like? And the sound was excellent, the video fine. Like Edinburgh was just the next city over, not thousands of miles away.

With one member from each of the Scandinavian countries, all women, and all fiddlers, Fru Skagerrak is a one-of-a-kind trio. They play “Scandinavian Raw Folk“, their repertoire consisting of music and songs picked evenly between the rich music and song traditions in Scandinavia, as well the members’ own compositions.

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 and released their first album "Fru Skagerrak" in May 2016.

Fru Skagerrak is:
~ Anna Lindblad (Sweden): Fiddle and 5-stringed fiddle
~ Elise Wessel Hildrum (Norway): Fiddle, recorder and song
~ Maja Kjær Jacobsen (Denmark): Fiddle and song
