from Norway since 2002 - inspired from the British Isles
Norwegian & British inspired roots & folkrock with
impact,interaction and atmosphere is the trademark of FolkPort. Their
varied musical concept covers everything from punchy
trad.and dancetunes to poetic ballads and instrumentals.
With their relaxed and experienced stage presenceand a perfect mix between their
own and more traditional music, FolkPort creates a mutual
"music pub mood" with any audience. Whether it's on a large festival stage
or at a smaller concert venue doesn't matter. It happens
every time. You can set your mind at peace with epic ballads
or sing along to nasty drinking tunes but you will surely
not be able to sit still when FolkPort stir up their punchy
dancetunes, jigs & reels.

Denmark including their sixth Skagen Festival in July
2013. At the same time there has been a lot of recording
sessions for their albums released in 2010 and 2015. A main event was
undoubtedly a warmup gig for Fairport Convention at Rockefeller
Music Hall in Oslo.
In 2018 and 2019 FolkPort is performing in a more acoustic format labeled FolkPort Acoustic.
