from Norway inspired from the British Isles
Norwegian & British inspired roots & folkrock with
impact and atmosphere is the trademark of FolkPort. Their
varied musical concept covers everything between punchy
trad.- and dancetunes and poetic ballads and instrumentals.
With their unique joy in performance,
relaxed stage presence and a perfect mix between their
own and more traditional music, FolkPort creates a mutual
music pub mood. Whether it's on a large festival stage
or at a smaller concert venue doesn't matter. It happens
every time. You can set your mind at peace with epic ballads
or sing along to nasty drinking tunes but you will surely
not be able to sit still when FolkPort stir up their punchy
dancetunes, jigs & reels.
During the last few
have performed at festivals and venues in Norway and
Denmark including their sixth Skagen Festival in July
13. At the same time there has been a lot of recording
sessions for their albums released in 2010 and 2015. A main event was
undoubtedly a warmup gig for Fairport Convention at Rockefeller
Music Hall in Oslo.
