Swedish folk trio Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall with their dazzling interplay, imaginative arrangements and carefully selected repertoire, have established themselves as one of the most exciting and popular acts on today’s folk scene. The Trio’s appearance in Concert Series Personally will be the collective’s Latvian debut.

Swedish folk trio “Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall” with its dazzling interplay, imaginative arrangements and carefully selected repertoire, has established itself as one of the most exciting and popular acts on today’s folk scene.

Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall offers a swinging and virtuosic interplay that invites both listening and dancing. The repertoire is based on traditional Swedish tunes, including slängpolskas from Skåne, triplet-based polskas from Medelpad, as well as their own compositions.

The trio has achieved great success around the world in recent years and has made ​​a success of several of the largest folk music festivals. Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall’s music is characterized by both pop and baroque influences, a great tonal range and an absolutely irresistible swing.

Traditional Swedish dance tunes merge energetically with baroque and contemporary influences in Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall's imaginative arrangements of slängpolskas from Skane, triplet-based polskas from Medelpad, as well as their own compositions. The trio has firmly established itself on the Swedish folk scene, picking up the Group of the Year award at the 2016 Swedish Folk & World Music Gala.

“A warmly irresistible, labour-of-love delight shone through the music of Emma Ahlberg (fiddle), Daniel Ek (guitar) and Niklas Roswall (nyckelharpa), individually ranked among Sweden’s finest traditional instrumentalists. Their magically lush, buoyantly rhythmic new versions of venerable tunes – chiefly highlighting the bewildering diversity of that country’s dominant polska form, but also interwoven with graceful baroque elements – thoroughly captivated the show’s sellout crowd.”
/“The Scotsman Newspaper”/
Five-string fiddler Emma Ahlberg Ek began playing at the age of five. She studied at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm and became a Riksspelman, one of the highest accolades within Swedish folk music, in 2010.
