acoustic energy (2)


The trio Viskraft ("Ballad Power") was formed a couple of years back by friends studying at the folk music academy Visskolan in Västervik, 190 km south-south-west of Stockholm.

We've already met Emeli Jeremias. Here now is singer-songwriter Dick Pålsson together with Oskar Jeremias, in charge of the bass (while not busy singing or composing).

Nice 'action' portrait.

How interesting that you have a folk music academy! Only 'serious' music taught in schools here...

Halcyon said...

They certainly seem to be having fun! And I also like the idea of a music acedemy for the"folk" genre. You guys are so progressive in Sweden!

I only wish there had been enough light to skip the boring flash!

Luis Gomez: It was that kind of evening!

cieldequimper: Thanks.

VP: I'm not entirely sure if "academy" is the right word but it's a serious education and they spend an entire year full time so - yes - in fact I'd say it's an academy!

Halcyon: Folk music has seen a revival in recent years and that's very encouraging.

arabesque: Glad you like it too.

Keep on groovin' folks!

I like folk music and have written quite a bit of it myself. I'd probably enjoy this group a lot!

Re your comment on Ocala DP: Clean your glasses and see what happens! ;-)
