We are so chuffed with the reviews of Life Continuum!
In England we received a review that perfectly describes what we hoped to purvey with Life Continuum. Below a short excerpt, the whole review can be read here.
“Life Continuum is an album of emotional peaks and troughs. It’s music that grabs you Pied Piper like you don’t want it to stop ever. Having heard it you can’t imagine being without it.” – Fatea Magazine Website
In Sweden a track from the album is included on the compilation CD of Lira, the biggest folk & jazz magazine, along with Lira Likes!

New album in the making
We are in the final stages of recoding our third album, Life Continuum.
“This is the first time I’ve cried in my studio!” said Oskar, our recording engineer, when we recorded “Ocean of Blue”. The album will be released at Ransäterstämman at the beginning of June, marking the start of our two month long album launch tour. For the second year running we are embarking on an international caravan tour. This time we will be playing in Sweden, England, Scotland, Wales and Germany, finishing up at Korrö Folkmusikfestival. A summer to look forward to.
Sounds of the World
Below is a teaser from our new family show “Sounds of the World”.
A collaboration with storyteller Mikael Öberg, weaving stories and music from near and far. Here in Swedish, but the show can also be performed in English 🙂
3 months on the road
August 2017 We recently returned home after 3 months on the road, including our 6 week UK crazy caravan tour. Thanks to all who helped us along the way – it was such an enriching trip, both as musicians and as a family. We enjoyed it so much we will be returning in 2018 to coincide with the release of our third album!
Here are some tour photos:
