Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gunnar Idenstam, organ and Johan Hedin, keyed fiddle, play tunes, reels and other dances in eighteenth-century late Baroque style, a waltz tinged with the Spanish Renaissance, another dance from Italy and a number of compositions by the musicians themselves. The music has characteristics of rock, reggae, medieval music and gospel. Gunnar Idenstam is a freelance concert organist, composer and folk musician. He gives concerts all over the world. As a folk musician he seems to be unique - in his manner of transferring the genuine Swedish fiddler tradition to the church organ or to the pump organ and the keyboard.

Johan Hedin grew up in the province of Småland, in an area where folk music was cultivated. Johan often plays in
Read more groups where different genres meet and are inspired by one another, as in the trio Bazar Blå (Bazar Blue). He has also put a lot of work into developing the keyed fiddle´s construction. Johan has also composed music for the keyed fiddle.
