Guest with Sångsystrar

Now it’s time for record release! Sångsystrar (singing sisters) Ulrika Bodén and Sofia Sandén have recorded a duo record. I visit on three tracks together with eminent bassist Patrik Grundström. And on some other songs, the not entirely unknown Daniel Ek is found on guitar in this context.
Come to Fastlandet in Härnösand Fri 13 May, at 12, or to Verket in Sundsvall, 19, Sat 14 May. Then we also have a band, no less than the students from the folk music line at Härnösands fhsk, Kapellsfolk!


Better late, or maybe not… In any case, here is the autumn concerts!
Carr & Roswall also have the pleasure of rehearsing at Estrad Norr for two weeks. And Marine & Roswall will record their debut album. The Eric Sahlström Institute has a new fine music class and there I and Jeanette Evansson are the class teacher. And on Kapell's folk music lines, for which I am the course leader, we now have a new record. Almost 30 full-time and part-time students and just over 30 more students on the distance course, ie over 60 folk music students, so much fun!
Hope to see you this autumn!

The future

It still looks harsh on the concert front. During the summer I will do a few, smaller gigs in Sweden. But then, in the autumn, I hope it will be a little more as usual again. If everything goes as we hope, Ranarim will do the remaining gigs that corona put a stop to, Marine & Roswall will record a CD, Carr & Roswall will be in Östersund during residency weeks and then tour in Jämtland and Västernorrland. Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall also have some gigs planned and the teaching at Eric Sahlström Institutet and Kapells in Härnösand will hopefully be in place again. In addition, we have some performances with St Olavsgänget. It will probably be a nice autumn!


Well, no concerts and not much else for that matter either.But at least the hair grows. Of course, it will not be much of a tour plan to release this spring. But Ranarim will play at Umefolk’s digital festival on February 26 and we are also trying to book the concerts that were canceled last autumn. Hopefully we’ll be able to do them by the end of spring. The teaching at Kapells in Härnösand and ESI in Tobo takes place at a distance now and it is actually going quite well, we have learned gradually and found good methods. It’s time to apply to both schools soon and I really highly recommend both. They have a slightly different profile and focus, so look at each website to find the one that suits you best or contact me. Folk on!
