Frifot - Sluring (2003)
Lena Willemark Ale Moller
|"The trio of Ale Möller, Lena Willemark and Per Gudmundson are already know to you as core members of the Nordan Project recordings on ECM. As Frifot they are a more folk oriented group, but they still stretch the boundaries and explore the outside edges on Järven. The fiddles are closer to the heart of this music, and both Gudmundson and Willemark offer stellar performances, driven on by Möller's rhythmic presence on mandolas. The trio provides lots of texture on bagpipes, hammer dulcimer, harp, harmonica and whistles. Foremost, there are the vocals of Lena Willemark, who once again displays a talent that surpasses genre, even in this stricter folk context. The album offers up 22 songs old and new that once again redefine the folk tradition and declare it alive and well in Sweden." -CF|
