The Music of ABBA is Coming This Year with ABBA GIRLZ!!
ABBA GIRLZ Tribute Band Sampler
The sounds of ABBA will be a major event at the Scandinavian Folk Festival. A six member group called ABBA GIRLZ will perform in the style of the original group. There are two female and two male singers along with two additional musicians. Their sound and costumes will bring back memories of the original ABBA group.
ABBA was Sweden’s largest export during some of the 1970s. Their Mama Mia movie and musical in the past 10 years have demonstrated that their music is still popular. Most people know many of their tunes and many can sing the words. Join in the singing with concerts both Friday and Saturday nights and a shorter performance Saturday afternoon. The ABBA GIRLZ have been well received at Scandinavian Festivals from New Jersey to California including the large Norsk Hostfest in North Dakota. We are pleased that we can bring them to Jamestown for this year’s Scandinavian Folk Festival.
