  • Traverse Theatre Bar 10 Cambridge Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 2ED United Kingdom (map)


Baltic Crossing use their strong affinity for old dance music and respect for each others traditions to bring a new vibrant energy to the folk music of Europe.

Wherever they meet, at least one must cross the Baltic Sea. With award-winning members hailing from the UK, Finland and Denmark, Baltic Crossing bring you fiery Scandinavian fiddles, bubbling Northumbrian pipes and a driving guitar and double bass rhythm section.

You may recognise some (or all!) of the band:

Ian Stevenson – guitar and button accordion (KAN, 422, Andy May Trio, Alistair Anderson & Northlands)
Andy May – Northumbrian pipes and piano (Andy May Trio)
Antti Järvelä – mandolin and doublebass (Frigg)
