Program 2024

Like the previous years our festival begins at 12.00 and the official program ends around 01.00 when all is coming apart. From that time on it’s only bluegrass jam at the campfire, hottubbin’ and perhaps some nightswimming.


Buster Sledge

Darleens

The Bumfuzzles

Trickbag

Zirkus


Buster Sledge

Buster Sledge is an acoustic chamber-quartet of four voices, fiddle, banjo, guitar and contrabass fronted by a Californian living in Norway and backed by three Norwegians of diverse musical backgrounds, all with a shared love for traditional American music. With a starting point in bluegrass, their music brings the melodic focus of American old-time fiddle music and the storytelling of old mountain-ballads and country songs together with elements from jazz, indie and jambands to create a contemporary expression of age-old traditions.

Darleens

The Danish country band from the early 1990s has released three albums, with the latest one coming out in 2003. The group was remarkable for its time, as it consisted entirely of women, which was unusual for a Danish Country & Western band at that time. They experienced great success in the early years and toured extensively around Denmark. In recent years, however, they have taken longer breaks, making it a unique opportunity to rediscover or revisit one of Danish music’s most unique ensembles.

The group’s songs are written by Margrethe “Maggie” Björklund, who, after her time with the Darleens, turned her attention to Nashville, where she worked as a session musician for several years. Over the years, she has collaborated with prominent names such as Jack White, Calexico, Mark Lanegan, and several others.

The Bumfuzzles

A shared love of 1950s rock’n’roll and rockabilly music brought together three expats and two native Danes to form the Bumfuzzles in Copenhagen, Denmark. We play a mix of well-known and obscure songs originally sung by primarily female singers of the 50ies as well as our own original songs with the authentic raw sound of rockabilly. We bring the party for your dancing shoes!

Trickbag

One of the world’s best blues bands is coming to Foxtail. With Tomi Leino on guitar, Steve “West” Weston on blues harp, and Tommy Moberg leading the way, expect nothing less than international class, and we promise this will be a party like no other.

With 30 years of experience, 8 albums, and numerous awards/nominations under their belt, Trickbag is in high demand, not only as headliners but also as one of the best backing bands for touring American artists in Europe. They performed at the prestigious Doheny Blues Festival in California in 2015 in front of 20,000 people. These guys are something special!

Trickbag’s charismatic frontman Tommy Moberg is a master at whipping the audience into a frenzy, supported by world-class musicians all around. This includes the British harmonica sensation Steve “West” Weston, whose tone is extraordinary and combines Chicago and West Coast styles, making him an absolute star in his field. Alongside Finnish guitarist Tomi Leino, who has built a worldwide reputation as one of the best blues guitarists of recent times, they have kept Trickbag at the top of their game for all 30 years. It is an extraordinary achievement, and we are incredibly excited to transform Foxtail Festival 2024 into a monster Juke Joint party.

Zirkus

Zirkus is a 19-member swing and dance orchestra as well as an artist collective. They have been active on the Danish music scene for nearly 12 years, taking the audience 100 years back in time with a mix of thundering swing music, cabaret, and intense storytelling. Their original and newly composed music is at the center, and Zirkus creates a wild party wherever they perform. We feel very privileged to present them at Foxtail Festival-24. We promise you won’t be able to stand still once they start playing. This will be an extraordinary experience.
