Frigg (Finland)

Today Frigg is one of the most successful bands of the Scandinavian folk scene. You could describe their music as Nordic-Americana-Powerfolk or "Nordgrass". In fact, Frigg are rooted in the tradition of Nordic Spielmann music, merging western folk music styles and sounding like a rock band or a river dance ensemble. The 7-piece band understands folk music as an expression of joie de vivre. The virtuoso interplay of four violins, guitar, mandolin and double bass, spiced with unrestrained, humorous energy, has inspired listeners and the press all over the world. In addition to numerous European tours, Frigg has made seven tours through the USA and has honoured many renowned festivals. Now for the first time in Vienna!

The Sargfabrik is tucked away in the fourteenth district, well away from the usual tourist track. Built on the site of a former coffin works, it was conceived as a ‘communal self-governing housing project with an advanced cultural programme’


This is where world music in all its variety is at home. A huge range of musical groups play at the Sargfabrik every week.
What they all have in common is their individuality and the high standard of the performances.
