Himlens polska (Erik Ask-Upmark)

This is the first solo CD ever with Swedish folk music played on the folk (celtic) harp ! Centuries ago, harps were heard in Nordic and Swedish traditional music, but somehow the tradition faded away - until now, when it is finally re-awakened. Erik Ask- Upmark’s playing is unique and his interpretations of the rhythmically challenging Swedish folk music to the harp really captivates the listener ! The repertoire consists of dance tunes (mostly the ubiquitous polska dance) as well as beautiful slow airs, bridal marchers etc.
