Finn Bø (4 July 1893 – 24 April 1962) was a Norwegian songwriter, revue writer, playwright, journalist, revivalist, instructor and theatre critic. He is particularly remembered for his song "Norge i rødt, hvitt og blått", which became extremely popular in 1945. Among his other popular songs are "Nå går'n på gummisåler" and "Bare rundt omkring", both from 1928. He published the anecdote collection Forbuden frukt in 1945, and the song collection Jeg tar mig den frihet in 1946. Several of his plays were also adapted into film.[1][2] His parents were Johan Christian Andreas Bø (1850-1924) and Valborg Hansen (1863-1910). He married in 1930 to Alfhild Knagenhjelm Poppe.[3]
