Swedish Folk Music Treasures: Tore Lindqvist

click to order

Tore Lindqvist is the second subject of the Treasures series. Born in 1914 outside Rimbo in Uppland, Sweden, he started playing when he was 10 or 12. His first fiddle was a Steiner which some down and out Gypsies pawned at the local store.

Tore's tunes are primarily after his grandfather, Manne i Fiskeså, plus Slev-Anders and others in the Roslagen area. When his family was growing up and the farm needed tending, there wasn't much time for music, but in the 70s he picked up his fiddle again and brought all the old tunes back to life. I filmed Tore and his favorite partner, Julia Ryberg, in March 2003.

Jag vill tacka för leveransen av de båda DVD skivorna med Hasse Gille och Tore Lindqvist. Mycket bra. De känns väldigt äkta och jordnära och ger en fin atmosfär.
