Baltic Crossing use their strong affinity for old dance music and respect for each other's traditions to bring a new vibrant energy to the folk music of Europe.
Wherever they meet, at least one must cross the Baltic Sea. With award-winning members hailing from the UK, Finland and Denmark, Baltic Crossing bring you fiery Scandinavian fiddles, bubbling Northumbrian pipes, and a driving guitar and double bass rhythm section.
You may recognise some (or all!) of the band:
Ian Stevenson – guitar and button accordion (KAN, 422, Andy May Trio, Alistair Anderson & Northlands); Andy May – Northumbrian pipes and piano (Andy May Trio) ; Antti Järvelä – mandolin and doublebass (Frigg) ; Esko Järvelä – five string violin (Frigg) ; Kristian Bugge – violin (Habadekuk).
