Gangspil is booking for 2017 - 2018 right now!
In 2016 we performed more than 50 concerts and dances, in about nine American states, and in British Columbia, Canada.
We played in peoples private homes, in folk clubs, sports halls, culture houses, Scandinavian centres, fiddle shops, museums, parks, cafes, churches, folk festivals, restaurants, radio stations and in quite a few Scandinavian fairs and heritage festivals.
We had a great time, and we met a lot of absolutely wonderful people!!
In 2017 and 2018 we are looking forward to continue the North American journey, as well as breaking new land in Europe.
If you are interested in booking the band, or if you know somebody who are, please do contact us.
Concerning the US, we'll have a one year long work permit ready from around early spring 2017!
Gangspil awarded Traditional Danish Folk Band of the Year 2017!
In November 2016 Gangspil was given a Danish Music Award (Danish 'Grammy'), in the category of 'Traditional Danish Band of the Year 2017'. Of cause we feel very, honored, proud and happy, but maybe also a little surprised, considering the many great competitors that we were up against.
We got the award for our new album, Gangspil, but also for our work promoting the great traditional music of Denmark in the US in 2016.
Also Kristian got an award as 'Musician/Instrumentalist of the Year', making him a very humble, but also a very happy man.
