Sofia and Alison
In a music review today, Po Tidholm makes a comparison someone should have done before: in her best moments, Swedish folksinger Sofia Karlsson (with band) is as good as Alison Krauss (with band, i.e. Union Station). So if you like folk songs combined with bluegrass, and don’t know of Sofia Karlsson and/or Alison Krauss yet, you sure have some records to buy.
(And that I used to work with Sofia’s brother Per, and that Sofia sang when the social democratic party’s congress was opened in November 2005, don’t make things worse, of course).
