This is the last song from häggfestival 2016. Now why don’t you go throw your own festival in the garden.
Getting a bit exited.
A bit of wind came our way, hope you like it anyway…
This is one of those songs that you first record then learn how to play live. Trying to match the melody and rhythm guitar all at once. Earlier this year we played this song on the livekarusellen tour, only with an electric-guitar. This time it’s all acoustic and sounds even more scaled back. I think the song has a bit of nerve that comes out quiet beautifully in the video.
We’ve started to edit some of the videos from the häggfestival and first out is our version of the Swedish midsummer song “Visa i midsommartid”.
Now that you’ve got a short introduction to the häggfestival in the resent post, we want to give you a preview of the music and the scenery.
In Sweden spring is magic. I imagine this isn’t unique for Sweden, but in fact for all countries in the same temperature zone. After a long and dark winter the light returns and with it comes all leaves, flowers and greenery. The world comes back to life again. Magic.
One of the early blossoms are Bird Cherry (hägg in Swedish) and we have them in abundance in our garden. I think we’ve talked about a Hägg Festival before (well, not on the blog obviously) just joking around.
Last weekend we had well over 20 degrees celsius and summer, which had as eager and starting to plan for our very own Häggfestival. This weekend we we’re determined, even with nearly freezing degrees, wind, a bit of rain and farming in the background. Oh, well, it’s never going to be perfect anyway!
I suppose I imagine it would be just us, Bird cherries, spring and music… Four ingedients we both happen to love. We still hope you will enjoy our Häggfestival 2016!
