Lena Jonsson: Places #PWM22


Release 15 february 2018!

Renowned for her work in the Swedish folk scene, Lena Jonsson has spent over 15 years performing in the US, UK, Europe, Australia and Asia. Her ability to balance a deep knowledge of traditional Swedish folk music with innovative artistic sensibilities has made her one of the most distinct artists and in-demand musical collaborators in the folk scene. For Lena travel is not only part of the job, it is where she draws her inspiration.

On her new album PLACES, she invites the listener “on tour” with each composition representing a distinct destination. Together with her trio (guitarist Erik Ronström and bassist Kristofer “Krydda” Sundström) as well as 11 guest musicians from the jazz, folk and pop genres, Lena takes us on a thought provoking fifty minute adventure.
