Now the summer starts soon and here’s our tour plan!

Have you seen that we are now on Spotify? There you can listen to our first two albums as well as some samples from the third.
But do not forget that for a small genre as folk music it is important that people are willing to pay for the music.
Otherwise, considering how few recording releases there are nowadays and with the small economic margins, we run the risk of not having any folk music publishing at all otherwise.
Enjoy the listening!
Now it’s autumn again, and soon it’s a year since we released our third album “AER”. It’s been a great year with many fun gigs and experiences.
This autumn we are looking forward to play at
Oktoberstämman in Uppsala, one of autumn’s major folk events. We will also make a small tour in Västerbotten.
Hope to see you!
We won! After being nominated three years in a row we won the prize for “Group of the Year” at the Folk- & Världsmusikgalan in Västerås.
In the joy and happiness, we didn’t manage to express our full thankfulness in the speach, what we wanted to say was:
It is a great honor and pleasure for us to receive such a nice price. We would like to thank the jury, all of which we are privileged to work with, family, relatives and friends, and most importantly, all of you who come to our concerts and listen to our records. Thousand thanks!
