Event description

Description

"Imagine folk music at the top of the charts. Imagine thousands of fans singing along with a rural refrain recorded decades ago. More than that, imagine bagpipes as a pop instrument. Well, it happened in Estonia, and Trad.Attack! did it on their first album. Now imagine having to follow that. But the Baltic three-piece have done it with admirable style, and built on that enviable start to create an album that breathes, dances, and keeps close to their love of archival songs."
Chris Nickson, FRoots, UK (2017)

It was supposed to be a fun project when these three got together in 2014, but in reality they turned everything upside down on the Estonian music scene. They have managed to bring traditional music to the big stages, selling out solo concerts in Estonia for more, than 3000 people and becoming visit card of Estonia abroad.

Since their debut concert with just 5 songs Trad.Attack! has won 14 music prizes, played in over thirty countries from Chiile to Malaysia, including significant festivals as WOMEX, WOMAD, Eurosonic, Transmusicales, Mundial Montreal and released 2 internationally acclaimed albums.

Trad.Attack play their own interpretation of Estonian folk, a fusion of rock, folk and bagpipe drive. But without compromising the traditional inheritance.
How does it sounds? You better come and check it yourself :-)
