Take three master fiddlers, hailing from Denmark, Norway and Sweden, and put them together at the 2011 Tønder Folk Festival in Denmark. What do you get? Fru Skagerrak—that's Lady Skagerrak, for this all-woman band from three countries around the Skagerrak Strait. They play a broad range of Scandinavian folk music, from fast to slow, upbeat to melancholy, major and minor, with some vocals and melodies on the sjøfløyte, a Norweigan folk flute resembling a recorder, thrown in. They are well studied on the traditions their music is based on, but they've got a decidedly contemporary vibe, bringing audiences worldwide the "pan-Scandinavian raw folk" they wanted but didn't even know they were missing.
