Game on is released!

Now Marine & Roswall have released the album Game on!
The release itself took place at the Ransäterstämman on June 8. You can buy the album from us at the summer concerts and soon also on Mia’s website. If you are in a hurry, you can send me a message right now and I will arrange a CD, info@niklasroswall.se. Digital release in a few weeks but feel free to buy a physical copy as well. Game on!

2024

So it was a new year again!
I have already recorded a CD with Mia Marine, it will be released in the summer. And AER continues the collaboration with Ulrika Bodén. We’re in the middle of rehearsing but we’ve already made some videos of the new tunes coming out soon. As usual, I also work as a course leader and teacher at the folk music courses at Kapells in Härnösand and teach at the Eric Sahlström Institute in Tobo.

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!

Autumn

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!
