“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 Scandinavia 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, Europe and the UK. Both of their albums have received rave reviews and radio air on both sides of the North Sea, and their third album is due for release in June 2018. Daniel & Emma Reid have collaborated with many outstanding international musicians, including Ian Carr, Nikolaj Busk (Dreamers Circus), Roger Tallroth (Väsen) and Eskisehir Symphony Orchestra (Turkey).
Daniel & Emma Reid receive touring support from the Swedish Arts Council.
