Music list

Mostly complete.  Includes only the Scandinavian folk music/artists in my collection.

Swåp - Swåp

Swåp - Swåp (1997)

"Two Swedes and two Brits; two men and two women; two Nordic folk fiddlers and two traditional Celtic musicians. This is Swåp: the inevitable confluence of two distinct but related musical cultures. Their music moves effortlessly from Swedish polska to Irish jig, from Swedish “vals” to British waltz, with swinging arrangements, memorable original compositions, grace, respect and passion." (Last.fm)

This blog is intended for trial purposes only.  Please consider purchasing the music contained herein if it is available in your country.

This blog is (intended to be) updated every one to two weeks.  If it has been longer than three or four weeks and you are eager for another update, please message me or comment.  I may become too busy to update of my own volition, but I will always try to update in a timely fashion if requested to do so.

I am not a particularly wordy person where music is concerned, nor am I blessed with the time to hunt for and compile information regarding most of the artists/albums I will post.  In most cases I will provide the bare bones of information: album covers if I can find them and general album information (including track listings, in case the tags do not transfer properly).  I will attempt to provide more information upon request.  As the name indicates, I intend to post primarily Scandinavian folk music, although I may occasionally branch out to other genres or branches of folk music.

Once I have my music list up, I will welcome requests for anything you are curious to try.
