"Sensitive, warm, peaceful and very beautifully played .. balsam for the soul."
- Spelmannen (translated from Swedish)
"It doesn’t matter what they play, its passion, intimate and of high quality."
"Their playing is accomplished and completely absorbing."
"A bold mixture of Swedish and British folk music entirely comfortable with both traditions and each other."
- Bright Young Folk
“A sensitive, mellifluous pairing of fiddle and saxes in elegantly reflective exploration.”
- Andrew Cronshaw, fRoots
Livestream Thurs 11 June
Finally – our first concert in several months! Tonight we are playing a livestreamed concert from Tonfabriken in Järna, Sweden. Tune in to our facebook page from 6pm British time, or listen afterwards. Than you to ABF Södertälje Nykvarn for giving us this opportunity.
When live music is silenced
Hello out there in your cottages, we miss you! Now that all concerts have been cancelled/postponed we will shift our focus to rehearsing, recording, composing, and enjoying a quiet schedule. We will update the calendar as soon as we have more information. Look after yourselves and keep listening to / playing music in your homes. Maybe it’s time to update your CD shelves (you know that musicians don’t get rich from you listening to Spotify?)?! A CD purchase is a simple way to directly support freelance musicians – one of the groups hit hard by the Corona crisis.
Live music in schools
We have thoroughly enjoyed performing our storytelling concert, Världen ljuder, around Sweden this autumn. It’s a joy to be able to bring live music and storytelling direct to schools – it’s noticeable that it’s a new experience for many of the kids. Now we look forward to our final concert of the year – Christmas songs and tunes together with the Stockholm choir Kuriosakören. We wish you all a Merry Christmas!
Collaboration with Campfire Stories!
We´re proud to announce a new collaboration with Campfire Stories!

Storytelling concerts this autumn
Calling all families who long for autumn cosiness with stories and music! In November we are performing our storytelling concert Världen ljuder on two occasions in the Stockholm area (in Swedish). See the calendar for dates/locations. Welcome!
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!
AT LAST – summer tour and launch of “Life Continuum”
We have finally moved into our caravan to start our two-month long international album launch tour. 20 odd gigs, in Sweden, England, Scotland and Germany. Follow us on our facebook page to receive tour updates.
Our new album Life Continuum can be purchased from the SHOP page.
