As Duo Åkerlund/Paulson, these two virtuosic musicians play Music for Dancers and Dreamers, traditional music reflecting the landscape of their homeland, set against the drama of shifting seasons. In their music is heard the sound of ice breaking, slowly melting snow and birds singing in promise of the coming spring. Stories that have travelled through generations tell of long winters framed by a longing for summer. Simplicity becomes something beautiful in their poetic dance and musical conversation.
Nyckelharpa virtuoso, Josefina Paulson, is acclaimed as one of Sweden’s finest traditional musicians. Jonas Åkerlund plays fiddle, hardangerfiddle, guitar and Swedish bagpipe. Jonas is known for his personal and traditionally rich playing of music from Västerdalarna and Smäland and for his exploration of the borders between tradition, improvisation and creativity.
