With music characterized by clarity and a presence that often produces the famous pin-factor in live settings, the two play and sing songs from the Swedish folk music repertoire that they have made their own.

Johan Hedin is a nyckelharpa performer and composer with a background from both traditional training from the elder masters as well as the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. His major point of interest is the meeting between folk tradition and other musical traditions. Esbjörn Hazelius is perhaps best known as a member of groups such as Quilty, Eitre and Sofia Karlsson band. He is influenced by Swedish, Irish and American traditional music.
