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.
My favorite food on the Christmas dinner table is the Swedish Christmas ham, but I know that a lot of people out there prefer to not eat meat for Christmas. One talanted artist that was a guest on my Xmas Calendar in 2009 showed me some great ways to celebrate Christmas without meat, and I decided to share that episode with you guys as a re-run.
Stiko Per Larsson is a great Swedish artist who is not only a vegetarian, but also have a habit of doing long walking tours. He’s walked all over Scandinavia playing his music. Check out his music and upcoming gigs here!
I have a habit of releasing a free Christmas single every year, and I am this year too!
The single will be released December 1st and will be a collaboration with The Bodyshop and ECPAT‘s campaign “Stop Trafficking”.
Along with the release I’m doing a Christmas concert at Clarion Sign in Stockholm, Sweden, December 1st! I’m playing my own Christmas songs and some selected favorites by other artists. As usual I’ll have a secret guest artist on the show and the Swedish Lucias will sing some lovely Christmas tunes as well!
