Synopsis

Amazon.com
Ale Möller, Lena Willemark, and Per Gudmundson are often considered the Trinity of the Swedish new-folk movement, having plied their trade solo and with some of Sweden's most important ensembles through the '80s and '90s. But in this trio they are often at their best. Willemark, she of the infamous, stormy voice, is also an excellent violin player, something often overshadowed in other contexts. Here she gets to stand next to Gudmundson, a fiddler of renown, bagpiper and spirited folk singer. Holding the whole thing together is Möller, the bouzoukispellman, harpist, whistler, singer, and jack-of-all-trades of Sweden's folk pantheon. This is a compilation of two of their previous Sweden-only recordings, Jarven and Frifot. It features a range of dance tunes and ballads, each played with appropriate spirit or dire energy. If the first 30 seconds of "Snettlin" doesn't get you out of that chair and dancing in front of your computer screen, give up on life. --Louis Gibson

Excellent
Jennifer Akers | usa | 10/20/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"They were featured on a recent (10/99) review on NPR. Very effective folk group - going back to roots and "modernizing" the tunes."
