Habadekuk


"Habadekuk are currently Demark’s most exciting and innovative folk band. They wowed audiences at Cambridge Folk Festival on several occasions. Denmark’s answer to Bellowhead." Eddie Barcan, Cambridge Folk Festival

"Plenty of brass oomph to accompany Kristian Bugge’s fiddle and a rhythm section that could power a cruise liner, they roar through a selection of traditional tunes." fRoots

Powerful horns, toe-tapping fiddle and contagious rhythms characterise Habadekuk – one of Denmark’s leading folk bands, guaranteed to get you on the dance floor.

With a vibrant mix of folk, rock, salsa and big band jazz, the lively eight-man band catapults old folk melodies into the 21st century. Expect everything from wild polkas and jigs to lyrical waltzes and rough n’ ready sailor songs in an unforgettable live experience.
