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.
December 13th is the celebration of Saint Lucia in Sweden. We usually celebrate by having a “Lussetåg” a Lucia parade, but instead me and Sweden’s sweetest jazz singer Anna Christoffersson are going to teach you how to bake Swedish Lucia Saffron Bread. We’re also going to sing you a Christmas song!
Still haven’t figured out what to get your lovers for Christmas and missed out on my special Christmas offer a few days ago? Don’t fret! Anna have some excellent albums that will make great Christmas gifts to anyone with good taste in music! Go here to get Anna’s albums: American iTunes Swedish iTunes

Sacramento press attended my show at The Coffee Garden the other night and you can read all about what they thought about the show here. So you missed it? Aawwww, too bad, but you can still catch my second show in Sacramento in Friday 10/19 at Zuhg Life store, the downstairs stage in the Downtown Plaza Mall. And to warm up you can tune into KDVS 90.3 FM tomorrow morning at 11am PST and hear a full hour of talk and music with me. And if you miss all that as well… you still have another chance to catch me at “The Saturday Morning Folk Show” on KDVS, Saturday at 11pm.
Last week I was on KSER 90.7 FM Everett’s Blue Moon Lounge (very fitting name since my first album is called Blue Moon) and you can have a listen to that interview here. (You’ll have to fast forward to the end of the first 8pm segment, and then the interview continues on the 9pm segment.)
I also did a short interview and played some songs on another great show at KSER, Nordic Roots and Branches with the ever lovely host Karen Pauley. You can tune in to that here!
This is the Ohio episode of Drivin’ & Dreaming. We check out the Zombies in Canton and visit some folk radio shows (read more and listen to them here). The RV breaks down again and my fans come to the rescue! A big big thank you to all who chipped in and helped us get back on the road!
I’ve released 9 episodes so far and the next one will be the last of the show. Stay tuned for the season finale!
You can see pictures from all my shows on my Facebook page here!
