Tonights music from a good Swedish friend….Mats Eden. Beginning with Groupa in the late 70’s-early 80’s up to the present, Mats musical career has expanded to include teaching, composing (both folk-based world music and classical), touring and recording. He has spent much time at the feet of older Swedish master musicians learning their craft in the time-honored way. Among others he has learned from Oscar Andersson, Mångskog, Värmalnd, and Pekkos-Gustav, Binsjö, Dalarna. Mats has also studied much in Norway. He has appeared in the Twin Cities at Nordic Fest and should be coming again this year.
