Tidens Brus is a music project that places traditional Aland songs in a contemporary musical context without compromising with tradition. Good music stands the test of time!
We have a special interest for shanties and sea songs that have been sung onboard the sailing ships. These songs are veritable ”time machines”, they give us a unique glimpse into the life on board and the thoughts of the old times. We perform these songs in the following setting: Marianne Häggblom, Kim Hansson, Kjell Frisk and Catherine Frisk Grönberg, four completely different voices. We have performed in a couple of countries including festivals in Ireland, Great Britain, The Netherlands and at our own Baltic Shanty Festival.
29 June – 1 July 2018 we hosted the Baltic Shanty Festival in Mariehamn, Aland Islands, Finland. 250 shanty performers took part in the event and we had great fun. Next festival will be 26-28 June 2020.
During the summer of 2019 we have performed at the Folk Festival in Hangö, Finland and at ”Beckbyxans dag” in Älmsta, Sweden. And of course regularly at home in the Åland Islands.
