Format: Audio CD
Picture it- you've just sat spellbound through an amazing concert- wow, you say to yourself- I'll really look forward to seeing them again when they tour the UK- then they announce that they are just due to split up. As soon as the last encore had finished we RAN to the music stall and bought everything we could by Filarfolket.

This retrospective compilation covers the 11 years of this amazing Swedish traditionally inspired (predominantly) acoustic band. Featuring Hardanger fiddle (that's the one with the sympathetic strings), bouzouki, sax, clarinet, cello and hand-drums, Filarfolket plays music ranging from melodic tunes with a confident driving beat to slow contemplative numbers in an ever inventive series of arrangements. They also throw in an occasional nonsense song. Happily they also include my favourite, the oddly named, "Slagen" by Ale Moller- a sort of Swedish funked up Calypso on speed.

If you want more then you may be able to pick up a copy of "Smuggel"- their only other CD release. Otherwise sadly, there's no vinyl transfers to date.
