The Danish Tønder Festival runs the last weekend of August every year, and has been doing so since 1974. The festival line-up consists of a large number of brilliant roots and folk bands from Ireland, Scotland, England, the US, Canada, Scandinavia and of cause from Denmark.
Ever since 2013, RadioFolk.dk has been recording quite a few Danish, Danish-Scandinavian and Norwegian roots, folk and trad bands at the festival, and now you can listen to a wonderful selection of these live-recordings in a serie of shows, most of them hosted in English, and all of them brought to you free of any charge.
The feature includes bands like:
Dreamers’ Circus (DK/S), Spöket i Köket (DK/S), Habadekuk (DK), Basco (DK/S/AUS), Floating Sofa Quartet (DK/S/SF), Fru Skagerrak (DK/S/N), Northern Assembly (DK/FO/GB), World on a String (DK/IND), Julie Alapnes (N), Himmerland (DK/GH/S), Ida Wenøe (DK), Jensen & Bugge (DK), Fromseier Hockings (DK), Odde & Holmen (N), Phønix (DK), Trolska Polska (DK/S), Det Yderste Hav, and many more…
Morten Alfred Høirup, editor of the programs says:
“I am so happy that it has been possible to document all these great Danish-Scandinavian bands through the years, and I would like to thank Rosa – Danish Rock Council, Tempi – Roots Music of Denmark, Tønder Festival, and the Danish Arts Foundation, for their support and cooperation. Also Peter Hellesøe who has been recording and mixing deserves to be mentioned, in fact he has done a tremendous job from his little black stationcar. And thank you to all the bands for their support as well, and to Erling Olsen from Go Danish Folk Music for his hard work through the years.”
