From the far provinces of Sweden comes the music of Bjärv, an exciting, traditional Swedish Folk Trio. Bjärv's fresh, contemporary interpretations of traditional Swedish folk songs breathe new life into the music of the 18th century. Infused with youthful charm, their innovative, stunning 3-part harmonies and show-stopping improvisational musicianship make their live performances a memorably rocking good time for all audiences.
The trio includes Mikael Grafström, from Ångermanland, on guitar; Olof Gothlin, from Värmland, on fiddle; Benjamin R. Teitelbaum, from Evergreen, Colorado, on nyckelharpa. The three met at the Eric Sahlström Institute in Tobo, Sweden, in 2001.
