Taste the music here: soundcloud.com/habadekuk

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, 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.

Habadekuk was awarded ”Album of the Year” at Danish Music Award Folk 2011 for their debut album ”Hopsadaddy”. Fiddler Kristian Bugge was crowned ”Folk Artist of the Year” at the same occasion. They also won Best Group at NORD ’09, the Nordic championships in folk music 2009. In 2013 they received another DMA award «The Tradition Award of the Year» and again in November 2014 they went home with two statuettes: «Album of the Year” and „The Tradition Award of the Year“. Latest Fiddler Kristian Bugge was awarded ”Danish Folk Musician of the Year 2016”, with that Habadekuk has taken home no less than 6 Danish Music Awards (Danish Grammys)!

The band has wowed audiences across Europe and Canada. They have appeared at Tønder Festival, Skagen Festival, Strib Vinterfestival, Glastonbury Festival (UK), Cambridge Folk festival (UK), WOMAD (UK), Beverley Festival (UK), Mission Folk Festival (CAN), Canmore Folk Festival (CAN), Calgary Folk Festival (CAN), Winnipeg Folk Festival (CAN), Vancouver Folk Festival (CAN), Korrö Festival (SE), Linköpings Folkmusikfestival (SE), Irish Guinness Festival (CH), NAFCo Fiddle Conference (IRL), Festival des Traversées Tatihou (FR), Gooikoorts (B), Sounds of the North (PL), Haukelister Festival (NO) Koskis Folk and Folklandia (FIN), Rudolstadt (DE) Rainforest World Music Festival (MAL).
