Many thanks to all of you who came to the Christmas concert yesterday! And a really big thank you to Arméns musikkår, Emil Björklund, Pontus Estling, Ulrika Boden and Anders Johnsson for your brilliant musicianship and some fantastically nice days!
Pleasant news, Niklas will be soloist with Arméns Musikkår in Kungasalen at the new Royal
College of Music in Stockholm, Saturday 17 December. There will be a christmas concert based on folk music and since also Ulrika Boden is soloist there will be a few old Ranarim tunes.

Now you can listen to the first part of my solo concert from Korrö Folkmusikfestival from this summer, more parts will follow. I have the honor to share the program with the gentlemen Hazelius Hedin, all in P2 Live, listen here.
Now is the summer past. There have been many pleasant moments for Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall with concerts in several of the biggest festivals and meetings in Sweden.
I have also had the pleasure to play with Ulrika Bodén a few times because of that I and AER are guests on her new album. The album is called Te berga blå and includes herding tunes and songs from the forests of the North.
Besides that, I have done some performances with the St. Olav’s show and some other odds and ends.
Now comes a fall full of exciting new projects and gigs!

It is a great honor and pleasure for us to receive such a nice price. We would like to thank the jury, all of which we are privileged to work with, family, relatives and friends, and most importantly, all of you who come to our concerts and listen to our records. Thousand thanks!
