Two Swedes and two English musicians make up this band. I first heard them on Andy Kershaw's R3 slot about a year ago and they were playing at an Arts Centre quite nearby, so I had to see them. I was struck by the contrasting elements of melancholy and brightness that seamlessly create a record of outstanding beauty.

I once heard Kenny Wheeler say he only liked sad songs, and I guess the same goes for me: listen to Ian Carr's instrumental, 'Ian's Javla Jig/Ian's Javla Polska' - track 3, and the full flavour of this magic combo will be revealed.

Karen Tweed's accordion playing is a revelation; and the two Swedish fiddlers, Ola Backstrom and Carina Normansson, (who also provides the vocals) take us on what they rightly call these chilling and thrilling adventures.

Talent in abundance; and live, almost too much to take in. Almost.

Oh yes, and if Ian Carr ever forgot how to play his sharp, concise and understatedly perfect chords, then he'd be a shoe-in for the Perrier Awards in Edinburgh, or whatever they call them now.

Go see 'em, and get their music. I envy you all the thrill of the discovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my desert Island disks 26 Nov 2007
By Eb
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant. Two fiddles, a guitar, an accordion and great vocals add up to more than the sum of their parts. I play this one in the gym, it keeps me going when I'm tempted to throw in the towel. Even the slow tunes are full of vim and vigor. Wonderful musicianship, they play off each other like old friends, and sound like they're having a blast. A British / Scandinavian blend, quirky, catchy tunes with lots of swing. See them live if you get the chance, but if not, this CD is the next best thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get Ready to Tap your Toes 20 Sep 2005
By DJDecca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Take 2 Celtic musicians, add 2 Nordic musicians and the result is an understanding of how similar Celtic and Nordic music is. Fiddles, guitar, accordion, and vocals. Solid playing throughout with a nice energy and a high degree of polish and charm. A fine mix of instrumentals and vocals, traditional and original compositions. It's great toe-tapping music, perfect for when your mood needs a bit of a pick me up.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD never grows old! 11 Feb 2009
By G. Feulner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Swåp offers an interestig combination of Celtic and Scandanavian music. The songs are all in Svenska (Swedish) and for the most part they are upbeat and at times "energizing". This CD is great if you want to just relax with a cup of tea or if you need to spruce up a rainy day. If you like "world" music or "celtic" music I highly recommend it... though, don't expect pure "Celtic" music... that it is certainly not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent intro to Swedish music 19 Feb 2013
By R.C.Wolff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Er, nothing 'Celtic' about this album at all! It's Swedish - mostly traditional - music, and quite magnificent. The arrangements are stunning. Some of it could be called 'toe-tapping' I suppose, but only if you can get your head round the unusual time signatures and extra bars in what is, amazingly, dance music. The rhythms of 'Blind Mattis Leken' defy all logic. Very helpfully, the sleeve notes give the lyrics in both Swedish and English. There's a lot of variety on the album, with instrumentals and songs. Highly recommended.
