from Trollhättan is secretary in "Ljungbacka's
Friends". His repertoire from all our bards of past times
who used to meet in "Den Gyldene Freden" of
Stockholm's old town and his knowledge of the Swedish ballad
tradition is impressive. Peo was very well received with his
music quiz on Ljungbacka the past five summers. He is going to present yet
another under the great oak on Ljungbacka 2019. Valuable prices
await those with good knowledge of the Swedish ballad tradition.
The three brothers Niklas, Gert and Jim from Lister have performed
three times on the
Ljungbackastage already. They have the audience in the palms of
their hands with their brilliant humour and wide range of old
and new songs. Much groove and feeling in their performance.
Welcome back again lads!
The traditional group Treklang
with Gunvor Åslund, Ann-Kristin Turesson and Leif Turesson are
our guests on the Ljungbacka festival for the first time this
sommer, as a group. Leif Turesson also plays in the band
"Fyra Skägg"who have played on the Ljungbackastage
previously and Gunvor Åslund is known here as a sessioneer and
box player at the childrens dance sessions on Ljungbacka.
Our hexagonal wooden open air dance stage will be opened for the
third time by this
traditional, Swedish dance group from Asarum. They are a
beautiful sight with their well coordinated dances and their
folkloristic dresses. The audience,
ofcourse will be invited to try the boards as well.
For the second year all children will have a dance session on
our dance stage with caller Kristin Eriksson and box player Gunvor Åslund.
It was tons of fun last summer so welcome all young dancers and
enjoy yourselves again!
Sessions in the park
Again this summer there will be a pause in the programme on
stage to prevent everybody in front of the stage from getting
stiff. Then it's time to get drinks and food from the barn or
throw a sausage on the barbeque. Grab the opportunity to walk
around in our beautiful park and listen to the many music
sessions between trees and shrubs, or just sit on one of the
many patios and enjoy the nature.
