Phønix

Phønix is one of Denmark’s greatest and most popular folk music bands.

The band creates a completely unique sound universe which has led them around the world to the biggest folk festivals and the most intimate club stages. The four talented musicians of Phønix capture their listeners with their own unique mix of untamed enthusiasm and irresistible musical charm.

Reviewers have praised Phønix’s musical nerve and ability. Harmonies between the accordion and Anja Præst’s clarinet, and Karen Mose’s clear voice are an integral part of the Phønix sound, which includes Jesper Vinther on the accordion and percussionist Jesper Falch. Phønix have won four Danish Music prizes for the albums ‘Girl & Boy’ (2002) and ‘People’ (2008), each album winning two awards apiece. As a live act, they have toured extensively, including the USA and Japan. Phønix bring new life to the Danish music tradition, and when they perform, they do so with such intensity and musicality that it is a pleasure to witness, as well as to hear.
