Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.
This is the very last episode of the Drivin’ & Dreaming show. In this episode we go to Chicago and eat Swedish food in Andersonville, get our RV fixed (once again) in Milwaukee, thanks Al! and last but not least we record a Daytrotter Session that will be released tomorrow September 21st!

This Thursday I was invited to play at the Swedish American Museum in Chicago. What a great night it turned out to be. I’ve played at the museum once before, when I was on my Lollapalooza tour in 2008 so it was a real treat to be invited back. There were over 120 people in the audience and we had a very nice VIP reception before the show.
Many thanks to Karin Moen Abercrombie and the other board members of the Swedish American Museum for a wonderful night, and to Konstnärsnämnden for supporting as well.
Here’s some pictures from the show. You can see the full album here!
