"Two of Denmark’s leading folk musicians take you along on a tour around the music traditions of their home country, backed up by the great Norwegian guitarist Vidar Skrede!”

In 2016 Gangspil received the "Tradition Award" at the Danish Music Awards (Danish Grammy).

Sonnich Lydom (accordion, harmonica), Kristian Bugge (fiddle) and Viðar Skrede (guitar) will guarantee you an entertaining and variated journey through the traditions of Danish folk music.

This lively trio performs old dance tunes and songs from every corner of their Scandinavian home country. From rural islands like Læsø to the metropol Copenhagen, including a few of their own compositions. Expect everything from wild polkas and jigs to lyrical waltzes, fiery reels and happy hopsas, plus the exotic “Sønderhoning” dance tunes from the famous Island of Fanø, and long forgotten songs from all over the country. An unforgettable live experience spiced up with humor and stories from their many years on the road.

Gangspil have toured intensively and played more than 100 shows in North America since 2015! - as well as a good number in other parts of the world. The group has become a well-known name in trad- and folk circles both home in Scandinavia and abroad.

The three musicians are known from bands like: Baltic Crossing, Habadekuk, Geitungen, Jensen & Bugge, ULC, The Secret Carpet Club, Marianne Green Band and Dronningens Livstykke.

They released their first album, “Gangspil,” in the summer of 2015. The U.S. release took place at the great Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend, WA in the first week of July. The Danish/European release was celebrated at the Tønder Festival in Southern Denmark in the last weekend of August.
