It was a very nice autumn with lots of travel and fun concerts! Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall released their new album, and we played a lot in Sweden, Norway and Japan. In Japan, we were a part of the project Sweden All Stars and as always it was a fantastic experience in every way. I have also had time to play with Ralsgård & Tullberg quartet, the St. Olav show as well as some other temporary projects and solo gigs.
Now comes an exciting spring, first of all, AER step in as guests at a CD recording. Later this spring we will tour in Denmark, Germany and Sweden, of course. In Sweden we will tour for the Smålands Musik och teater, 8 concerts in the Jönköping area. I also look forward to some more gigs with Ralsgård & Tullberg quartet in May. Besides this, there is a lot else going on, both as a soloist and in groups, so keep your eyes and ears open!
Now we’re up and running again after a lovely summer with lots of fun concerts, meetings , travel and fine experiences.
Some of autumn’s highlights will be:
-We participate in Folkelarm in Oslo, 24-26 Sept .
-We are recording a new album, release concert in Sundsvall on Wednesday, November 4 at Tonhallen.
-We go on release tour in Sweden, 8 concerts so far, more to come.
-We collaborate with Ulrika Boden with friends and Göran Månsson band in the project ” Sweden All Stars “. We will rehearse and then tour in Norrland this autumn, 6 concerts, and thereafter tour in Japan in December. More info about Sweden All Stars, as our dear Japanese friends decided to call the project.
Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall have done 15 concerts in Scenkonst Sörmland.
AER will play at the Shetland Folk Festival.
AER is nominated for the second year in a row for “Best Group” at the Folk & World Music Awards, this year 14th of March in the Berwald Hall, Stockholm.
