Formed after a heavy night involving cards and red wine, D.u.K are a young, exciting and rocking six-piece folk ensemble from Denmark and the UK, playing the best tunes from both traditions. The sextet, consisting of four fiddles, piano and double bass, is made up of one Englishman and five Danes, hence the genre of their music.

Having played concerts and ceilidhs in both England and Denmark, and winning a contest and record-contract by the prestigious Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, D.u.K are well underway in making a name for themselves on the international folk scene, with both a full-length album out and a recently released EP.

As well as using original compositions and modern arranging techniques, D.u.K definitely don’t forget their strong roots and traditions and quite simply use raw groove and swing to create an eclectic mix of foot stomping music, from slow lyrical airs to driving jigs, reels and polkas.
