Scandinavian String Alliance

Denmark, Norway, & Sweden


Scandinavian String Alliance (SSA) is a touring project created by two Scandinavian bands, who play and sing traditional as well as newly composed music and songs from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

The project features the Pan-Scandinavian violin trio Fru Skagerrak and the Danish violin and guitar duo Kristian Bugge & Morten Alfred Høirup, and their very individual ways of presenting the music of their homelands. The two acts join forces as a showcasing old Scandinavian joking songs and beautiful love songs, combined with some great traditional dance music and catchy new tunes – all arranged for strings, flutes, and voices.
