The trio of Cajsa Ekstav, Bo Larsson and Örjan Englund is from Uppland, one of the richest folkmusic areas in Sweden. They are lifelong friends and have played together in many different places and settings. All three are distantly related to each other and all three have deep roots in the "soil" of Swedish folkmusic. This tradition of folk music and dance rooted in the 1800s, has survived in spite of all the trends and outside influences washing over the cultural landscape of Uppland. Their music is still functioning as a driving engine for people who have the desire in their bodies and souls to play, sing and dance in the old way. This is truly a living tradition, and these three musicians are some of the finest examples of that Uppland tradition. Click on the images to learn more about each of these fabulous musicians - then come and meet them yourself!
