Gangspil is a versatile duo featuring Sonnich Lydom (accordion, harmonica) and Kristian Bugge (fiddle) that provides an entertaining and variated journey through the traditions of Danish folk music. These lively musicians perform 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. Between them, Sonnich and Kristian have won five Danish Music Awards and have performed with some of the most exciting and well-known musicians from the Danish and Nordic folk scene.
