NORTHERN LIGHT – FOLK FROM THE NORTH OF EUROPE
The four musicians of Northern Light come from different folk traditions and venture an exciting connection: Powerful songs from Ireland and Scotland, paired with selected melodies from Sweden and Norway. With Northern Light, it soon becomes apparent how strongly these genres interact. Fast Polskas take the band to Scandinavia, rousing songs of Irish heroines tell tales from days gone by - and the next moment the band fuses the different folk traditions into something completely new.

Hi, we're Northern Light!
The sound of Northern Light is created by the interaction of the voices with the three different melody instruments and rests on the foundation of the accordion bass and the bouzouki. With their sophisticated arrangements, the musicians put this variety of sounds in a virtuoso light.
The band has a lot planned for the 2020 season - including a longer tour abroad, numerous concerts in Germany and recordings for the second album.
Lead Vocals, Accordion
Franziska is a studied accordionist and singer. She has been playing Scandinavian music since childhood and has performed at concerts all over Europe.
Vocals, Flute, Whistles, Pipes
Steffen is a woodwind instrument maker. He plays Irish Folk on the wooden transverse flute and the bagpipes - this passion has taken him from Germany through Europe, the USA and as far as Australia.
Michael grew up in a musical family in Dallas, Texas. He played the fiddle both in classical music and on rock stages, but found his musical home in folk music.
With his large, open Bouzouki, Tobias has long been on the road on German and international Irish folk stages. His virtuoso, powerful accompaniment creates an unique foundation.
