Fikavalsen – The Single
Available from all good digital download stores.
In Swedish ‘fika’ is to have a cup of strong coffee with a cinnamon (or any kind of) bun. As often as possible. It is a Swedish institution to stop for fika. Swedes drink really strong coffee. This waltz was written to be calming when you’ve had too much caffeine.
Back in September 2016 Jonny and I were called in to take part in some filming for the BBC. We ended up using this tune for one of the themes. We got home and re-recorded it (it’s on Gleowien, which is now sold out) and we’ve released it in readiness for January 3rd. Once the episode has aired we’ll add to this page! In the meantime we’re keeping very quiet, except for the music! Enjoy that and watch out for it (unless it got cut!!!) January 3rd BBC1 – 8pm. (That’s a tiny hint!)
Vicki: nyckelharpa and oktav-nyckelharpa
Jonny: piano and bass
