Don't miss your chance to experience one of Sweden's most treasured singers on Ljungbacka this summer. She is going to be a big star before long!
Peo Hallberg
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.
Briggen Tre Bröder
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.
Asarums danslag
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.
Children's dances
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.
