Olov Johansson: Acoustic Folk, from Sweden to Indiana

VasenSwedish acoustic folk icons Väsen take the traditional music of their homeland and give it a distinctly modern sensibility. This is dance music at its best.

We spoke with nyckelharpa player Olov Johansson about the origins of the music, the emotional connection with their audiences, and why fans from the Lotus Festival in Bloomington, Indiana are naming a street after the trio. You can see Vasen perform at Wintergrass Festival February 27 – March 2.
