Fribo is a unique collaboration between three musicians from Norway, Scotland and England, who blend their own musical styles together in an innovative and sensitive way.

After first playing around an old Edinburgh kitchen table in 2003, Anne Sofie Linge Valdal, Sarah-Jane Summers and Ewan MacPherson decided to pursue this beautiful collision of music to seek out the very threads, which connected them in such a natural yet unexpected way.

A newly tailored set swiftly followed and Fribo began sharing their carefully woven melodies with the world. Since then their graceful blending of Anne Sofies pure beautiful Norwegian voice, Sarah-Janes rich Scottish Highland fiddle and Ewans sympathetic guitar backing has become a sound in itself.

With a growing reputation, their live shows have been receiving great responses with performances at many venues in the UK and Europe, highlights to date include: Telemark Festival (Norway), Celtic Connections, Orkney Folk Festival, Nordlys Festival (Denmark), Skye World Music Festival and Northern Streams (Edinburghs Ceilidh Culture).

The band recently won a Creative Development Award from the Scottish Arts Council, which they have used to record a debut album (produced by Fraser Fifield), now being released on the popular Fellside Recordings label in January 2007.

"They are FABULOUS!!!" (Genevieve Tudor - BBC Radio Shropshire)

"Fribo is for me one of the discoveries of the year" (Marius Roeting, New Folk Sounds NL)

"...one of the most adventurous sets of the festival." (Orkney Today)

new and exciting Edinburgh based three-piece who combine the Scandinavian and Scottish traditions with an exuberant feel for contemporary sounds and rhythms. Anne Sofie's beautiful and subtle vocals combining with Sarah-Jane's highland fiddle style are more than ably supported by Ewan's guitar and vocal nuances. (The Tolbooth, Stirling)
