Folkmusic with finesse! Original, playfull and sensitive
Goodland Trio was founded in the fall of 2009 by Hanna Wiskari Griffits, Jonathan Larsson and Oskar Reuter. The repertoir of the trio consists mainly of original tunes, composed by the members of the group, with a distinct nordic sound. With soprano saxophone, accordion and guitar, Goodland Trio plays polskas, waltzes and other common Swedish types of tunes. The arrangements wavers between the traditional and the contemporary, with influences of pop and improvised music. The rather young trio include a wide and versatile competence in Swedish folk- and world music. Each member has studied the Swedish fiddle tradition thoroughly for themselves and this characterizes their way of composing and performing. The music can be described as bright, playful and accessible.
