ROCKRIDGE BROTHERS:
Old time appalachian white collar punks!
The Rockridge Brothers represent the best of hillbilly live music and have played clubs, pubs, concert halls and major festivals in Europe and the US for several years.

In 2002 four musicians got together in Stockholm, Sweden, to make a bluegrass soundtrack for an animated movie. Right away they felt the need to make something more out of this newly formed combo. Pooling their different musical experiences, ranging from country to punk, they found common ground in old time stringmusic, feeding their own high-energy interpretations right back into that tradition. The Rockridge Brothers draw from the wast tradition of genuine american folk music, take it to a contempary scene and make it grow.

Folk culture is not there to be put on display at museums, it's there to be lived. Since that time the Rockridge Brothers have been touring Europe and USA, bringing the very best of hillbilly style mountain music to everybody and anybody they meet.

The Rockridge Brothers are:
Ralf Fredblad – fiddle
Peter Frövik - guitar
Kristian Herner - banjo
Pontus Juth – upright bass

“If I told you that I had just encountered the best new old time band that I'd heard in years, and asked you to guess where they were from, you'd probably mention West Virginia, North Carolina, or maybe Virginia or Kentucky. You'd be wrong. The Rockridge Brothers come from… wait for it… Sweden. Yep, you heard me right. And don't go thinking they're some sort of Hardanger fiddle-toting polska-old-time fusion band… this is the real deal. Raw and awesome.”

- Megan Romer, Grassroots festival manager

LILY ON THE ROCKS:

Bandet har beina i Oslo og hjertet i Amerika. De er opprinnelig fra landet, men måtte til byen for å finne ut av det hele. Med seg har de gitarer, autoharpe, fele og sangstemmene sine, og de håper du vil gi dem et øyeblikk til å forklare hvorfor de er her. Livet er vakkert og grusomt. LILY ON THE ROCKS er Even Ødegaard og Cecilie Herlofson.
