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 six summers. He is going to present yet another under the great oak on Ljungbacka 2020. Valuable prices await those with good knowledge of the Swedish ballad tradition.
Open singing with Stef and the Sandberg Trio
This summer there is going to be open singing under the oaks on Ljungbacka! Stef and the Sandberg Trio with his ex wife Heidi and daughter Fia, is leading the audience for half an hour in songs from the Swedish tradition. Most of you will know all songs by heart but there will be song sheets distributed so everybody can join in from the bottom of their hearts.


Emelie Karlsson and Bortanvind band
Bortanvind translates American folksongs to Swedish and with guitar, cajun and harmony singing the songs are performed close to the Swedish tradition. With focus on emotions and lyrics they take the audience through various stories of life.
They had a very successful performance on Ljungbacka in 2016 and we are looking forward to welcoming them for the second time in 2020!
Asarums danslag
Our octagonal wooden open air dance stage will be opened for the fourth 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 third year all children and adults will have a dance session on our dance stage with caller Kristin Eriksson and box player Gunvor Åslund. It was tons of fun the first two years so welcome all young dancers and adults 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 or hamburger 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. There are also usually spontaneous sessions in the house.
