Interview with Stringflip: “Schweizerhalle was a lovely venue to play at”

Danish/swedish Stringflip plays contemporary folk music inspired by the Nordic and Celtic tradition. They released their self-titled debut album in april 2021 and has since then gotten great reviews from British The Living Tradition,  and Danish Rootszone. Read more about their concert and experience at Folk Spot 2021.

How was it to be at Tønder Festival in some different surroundings than normal? 

It was the first Tønder Festival for three out of four from the band so we haven’t got so much to compare to. But we were very happy to finally be a part of Folk Spot even though the circumstances were a bit unusual. 

Is it good to be back on stage?

We’re naturally really happy to be back at work again. 

What has been the best experience during Folk Spot?

Schweizerhalle was a lovely venue to play at so that’s always great. And we were also very pleased with the hotel. 

Have you kept in musical training during the Corona pandemic?

As many other bands we used the lockdown to record an album. In the small periods where the world was open again fx summer 2020, we got to play a few concerts. We play in many different projects so all of us have been active during the lockdown. 

Now that the world is open again, what is Stringflip’s next move?

We just got nominated for a DMA Roots as ‘New Name of the Year’, so we hope that it can generate some buzz. We’re also looking a bit towards Germany and Belgium and we’re also working on new material.
