It doesn’t matter what they play, its passion, intimate and of high quality.”
– Folkworld

The Sweden-based duo-couple Daniel and Emma Reid perform songs, self-penned tunes and traditional material from both Sweden and the British Isles, all with a remarkably close and spontaneous interaction. The eclectic mix of instruments and vocals combined with sheer musical brilliance makes for incredibly varied, evocative performances.

Daniel & Emma Reid have performed on intimate and major stages across Sweden and the UK. Both their debut album “Innerligheten” and the recently released “Nära & Kära” have received rave reviews and radio air on both sides of the North Sea. Daniel & Emma have collaborated with many outstanding international musicians, including John McCusker, Ian Carr, Nikolaj Busk (Dreamers Circus) and Roger Tallroth (Väsen).

Daniel & Emma Reid receive touring support from the Swedish Arts Council.
