With soprano saxophone, accordion and guitar Swedish Goodland Trio invites you into their warm soundscape. Rhythmically, sensitive and heartfelt, the trio play original Scandinavian traditional music with a close interaction and a unique intimacy with their audience.
Founded in 2009, Goodland Trio has since then been touring extensively and released two critically acclaimed albums; ”Goodland Trio” and ”Skogen i staden”. The repertoire of the trio consists mainly of original tunes, composed by the members of the group, with a distinct nordic sound. Goodland Trio plays polskas, waltzes and other common Swedish types of tunes as well as traditional songs. The arrangements wavers between the traditional and the contemporary, with influences of pop and improvised music. The trio include a wide and versatile competence in Swedish folk- and world music. Each member has studied the Swedish fiddle tradition thoroughly for themselves and this characterizes their way of composing and performing.
”The three musicians really have an affinity for each other and for each others' music. These tunes sound like they are played with one musical mind, like a master of the pipe organ who is working three separate musical voices with one body. The musical prowess of this trio is inspiring.” - GREG HARNESS, Rootsworld
" The three instruments seems to be ment for eachother, Together, they spin a musical web and the result becomes a nice entirety." - LARS LIND, LIRA
"This is affectionate folk music performed with a warm feeling and with an interesting, timeless sound" - MAGNUS BÖRJESSON, Nerikes Allehanda
