When Estonian Folklore Society Leigarid organized their season closing party in 2018, we came to an idea to summon all members of the Society who have ever held an instrument in their hands and play for dance as a surprise. The big plan was not fully realized as the Pop-Up-Bigband appeared to be smaller than hoped, but the band received still a very warm and even stormy welcome.
From this on Leigarid music group has always for different performances of Leigarid dance groups and other events. Our repertoire consists of all favourite dance tunes of folk and dance club dancers and also of less known traditional melodies.
Aita Teigar, Raivo Männik, Tanel Torn – diatonic accordion
