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.
