Ballads and Folk

All my life I´ve been singing and playing songs by Swedish poets and composers like Evert Taube, Bellman and plenty of others.

I feel close to those composers and musicians who blend Swedish folklore with jazz as does Jan Johansson and Lars Gullin for example.

But I also feel close to the musicians that plays like one hundred years ago. I live in an area of Sweden where the tradition is very rich and deep, and that inspires me a lot. I love to play old traditional songs in my own way. And sometimes I find myself writing something very Scandinavian.
