Svanängen aka Loney Dear

Svanängen and Stålhberg.

A week ago I was at an amazing concert with Emil Svanängen, aka Loney Dear. Together with him on stage was Malin Ståhlberg, Junekvintetten, John Bauers Brass and Mats Olsson. The concert hall was packed with an enthusiastic crowd.

This concert was a part of a tour within Jönköping County called “Svanängen on Tour”.

I was in such a hurry for the concert that I forgot to bring my “big” DSLR camera. Kind of funny, but thank God, my small camera was in my pocket!

On this video they are playing a new tune, filmed with small camera.

At the end of August I went some 100 km south of Jönköping, to attend a a concert at Lekaryd Church, outside Alvesta. Linda Pettersson, an amazing jazz singer and artist, together with fantastic guitarist Krister Jonsson were performing. This was one of the better concerts I ever been to!

I wish more people would discover this brilliant music! Please check out the amazing album Remembering (at Spotify).

Mullsjö International Photo Festival 2013

Örjan Henriksson

Örjan Henriksson

As a title for this amazing photo festival I like to put the classic Swedish proverb: “Do not cross the stream for water”.

Since a couple of years there is a new fantastic photo museum in Stockholm, Fotografiska, where a lot of amazing photographers work have been exhibited. But I would like to add: since a couple of years there exist an amazing photo festival in Mullsjö, the Nordic capital of photo! So for a person like me, who lives 30 minutes by car from Mullsjö, I do not need to travel all the way to Stockholm to view world class photo! At least not in the beginning of June!

Another meaning of the above proverb is that there exist some amazing photographers in the neighborhood! For example Örjan Henriksson, Mullsjö. His exhibition show interesting photos of residents from Mullsjö, people that for some reason has caught his interest! So for this exhibition he did not walk far for the motives!

The tunnel

Tunnel.

Tunnel.

After passing the curve in Panathinaikon Stadium a tunnel come visible, which look exciting and mysterious. At the end of the tunnel you reach several rooms, possible a building, probably called House of Athletics. In one room there are the official poster for each Olympic Games since 1896 and forward. Also the used torch on each games can be found there. Beside being museum there are changing rooms for the athletics.
