Två live plus new releases / mixed bag

Hear this show now:


Swedish fiddle duo Två perform live and chat during the second hour of the show.

Emma Reid and Alicia Bjornsdotter Abrams both studied Swedish traditional fiddling at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm. They also share an interest in the UK's Shetland Isles fiddle tradition. In Sweden they play together in a band called Ditt Ditt Darium but on this show they perform in the unusual and compelling fiddle duo format. They call their duo Två (pronounced "t-voh") which simply means "two" in Swedish.

If you're in the Philadelphia area you can also check out an American-roots oriented band Alicia plays in called Jive Five Minus Two: http://www.jivefiveminustwo.com.
