The singer and nyckelharpa player is joined by a great cast of musicians, too: Fredrik Gille, Dan Svensson (from Yolariis), Anders Lofberg, Bridget Marsden, Emma Ahlberg-Ek and Olle Linder.

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
