The group’s name, Åkervinda, is inspired by a Swedish wildflower whose roots spread far and wide like rivers under the ground. Like the flower, gracefully entwining melodies, rock solid groove, and ever intruiging harmonies will take root in your mind. Like the flower, they will be impossible to remove. Jazz singers at heart, the young women of Åkervinda share a deep love of folk music. Through improvisation, the group gives new life to traditional folk songs and stories of women throughout the ages.

LONDONERS! Just 10 days to go until our gig at Cecil Sharp House with the incredible Åkervinda! We can’t wait to share all the new music that we’ve been touring around North America with, and we thought we’d share this little rehearsal clip with you. This is one of our first run-throughs for our collaboration. (Extended version will be on Patreon shortly!) See you on 27th April —> https://www.cecilsharphouse.org/csh-about-us/21-shared/shared-events/5876-the-swingles-akervinda #swinglesathome #swinglesontour #akervinda #londongig
