OIGG is a traditional Irish music band from the green fields of Northern Ostrobothnia. OIGG hatched more than ten years ago as a duo of flutist and pianist. One of the first songs on the band's list was Old Gray Goose, and both musicians had casts, one in an arm, the other in a leg. That's how the name of the band was born: Old Invalid Gray Geese, and the abbreviation OIGG came into use. Later OIGG has grown into a quintet with the addition of an accordion, a violin and an octave mandolin.
The melodies of diatonic accordions, violin and flute are rhythmic and harmonized by the seamless collaboration of piano and octave mandolin. The repertoire includes instrumentals and songs from both the old and the new layer.
New dimensions have been brought to OIGG's sound by a new kind of keyed flute. And when the band wants to get little wilder roaring frequencies of the octave mandolin and a stomp box starts pounding.
