Trio svin (DK)
Heavy grooves, deadly speed and lethal licks.
Like an uprising against all the ‘nordic sentimental folkmusic’ Trio Svin fights a desperate battle, making the world an uglier place, one concert at a time. With a tongue-in-cheek attitude, a crazy musical approach and a foundation in Bluegrass and Nordic folk music Trio Svin fills a need nobody knew they had. Like an ass-kicking that you never asked for, but secretly wanted all along – folk musical catharsis.
Their uncompromising, raw attitude resulted in a nomination in the category “Talent of the Year” at the Danish Roots Music Awards in 2015.

Lars Lind, Lira:
“Danish Trio Svin play as if though every tune was their last. “Folkrock” is in short supply these days, so it’s important to appreciate it when it comes around. The three young men play as if though their lives were at stake.”
Harry Eucrow, Konfront:
“A half hour of madness-extravaganza. […] They run into multiple technical problems and the trio is obviously more interested in having a party than playing perfect, but all of this only heightens the mood. As they walk off stage they flip off the audience and go: ”Thank you, fuck you all!” it’s art.”
Maj Øvlisen, jydske vestkysten:
“Outrageous!? Terrible!? Amazing!? […] For a moment I’m speechless. It’s such a far cry from anything else going on at the festival [red. Tønder], but there’s still that familiar fiddle and a well known glimmer of political sarcasm. It’s obvious that a part of the trio’s goal is to take people outside of their comfort zones. It’s full of energy and the audience is definitely captured, but i can’t decide if the whole thing is terrible or amazing.“
“Right from the first note, it was clear that a brilliant ensemble, high intensity and big smiles would be the theme for the next 1⁄2 hours experience. That all three members mastered their instruments virtously was only underscored by the many superior “surprises” and breaks.”
>Per Dyrholm, Rootszone
“The band presented hard-hitting folkrock with humor and selfdeprecating irony and their bursts of energy were contagious and had people headbanging on the front rows. Might be a rare sight on a folk stage, but Trio Svin was equally entertaining and masterful”
