After three months in lockdown we’re gradually finding our way in this new online life of ours! We’ve made around 250 videos, Jonny has nearly finished his epic album journeying through different musical eras. We’ve run World Nyckelharpa Day online and now it’s time to do some concerts with a real live audience! We had a wonderful gig for Oxford Folk Weekend last week and it made us realise how much we miss real live audiences! (We knew that anyway!) So we are going to put on a concert of our own probably about once a month. The first of these is going to be Smörgåsballad – Songs and Tales from the Land of the midnight sun. All the details you need to know are below!
Hope to see (and hear) you there!!
