We can all die in peace now that we have finally been reviewed in the Old Time Herald, aka the Bible. Click on it to read it!
This also means that the next person to walk up to us and ask us to play irish folk music, any mainstream country song, swedish folk music or “that song from the movie” will get kicked in the eye. We don’t do that. We play old time string band music. Because we are an old time string band. We have earned that title.

We released the record Dance monster to my soft song with singer Karla-Therese Kjellvander a few months back. It is now released in the UK through Folkwit records. Check them out, they have a lot of good artists and we are very proud to be in that lot!
Thanks to our friends at Playground music that helped making this happen. We hope we get a chance to go back to the UK real soon, it has been too long!
