Folk Spot 2014
A series of concerts recorded in 'The Old Mill' at The Tønder Festival in Denmark
in August of 2014.

Some of these programs will be broadcast on all the RWR stations during the Fall and Winter of 2014/2015. The concerts were made available to RootsWorld with the support of Danish Roots - Growing in the World and via the hard work of musician and Danish music devotee, Morten Alfred Høirup.

Broadcast November 1 - 9

In 2004, ten years ago, almost to the day at the time of writing this, four sweet young lads who should have been training to be bankers or insurance salesmen performed a couple of tunes written by one of the fiddlers at one of the Danish Tønder Festival’s large tent stages. Little did they suspect that a decade later, with many breaks as members completed their studies in far away lands, had vast numbers of children, left the band to renovate houses or just generally laughed, lived and loved, that they would still be touring, writing music together and as a rule, enjoying one another’s company.

Listen to the program

Basco has evolved over 10 years, three albums and one change in line-up from a bunch of kids playing some tunes and having a blast, to a group of young men, husbands and fathers, arranging, writing, orchestrating and touring together, and having a blast. They continue to find new ideas to play with, new and interesting artists to collaborate with, and new sparks of genius and streaks of idiocy in each other. It is this playful abandon which drives them, and long may it continue.

Their newest recording is Live at DR Byen
