Basco are a fiddle-scraping, box-belting, cittern-smacking folk/roots band with members from Denmark, Sweden and Australia. Basco really just want to tell you some stories.

Their music is complex and varied, from hard-hitting, high-speed reels full of rosin dust and sweat, through sweet and melancholy tunes that tell of loves won and lost, through fitful fever-dreams of fractal complexity and fascinating texture, to songs that when you come down to it, are really just about sex.

Basco’s material is nearly all original, stealing shamelessly and frivolously from Scandinavian, English, Celtic and American idioms to create a kind of organic, soupy stew – full of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Basco often join forces in Big Basco with three horn players, known for their work with Denmarks Radio Bigband, World music phenomenon “Tummel” and the Odense Symphony Orchestra. Folk, Jazz and Classical music in one magical mess, with Basco’s beautiful tunes at its centre. Basco also perform together with big bands and brass groups.
