Palio, Nia dance and a couple of G and T's

I've had a great time in Italy with the love of my life, this August. After a rather busy summer with many gigs around a rainy and cold Sweden, it was terrific to relax in a really hot Tuscany/Umbria.

We were at a couple of nice parties, we danced some Nia dance classes by the pool, me, Sylvianita, Angela, Antonella and a bunch of other new friends, enjoyed a couple of G and T's and whiskey's on the terrace, socialized with the nice neighbors. And one day we ended up at Ikea in Florence, eating Swedish meatballs (whoops, that was supposed to be a secret) Anyway, we had a fantastic time! Arrivederci Italy-Hej Sverige!

Nicchio was my father in laws contrade. Unfortunately they lost this year.

Kärleksbrev till Malung

Det var någon som sa att Malung är det originaltätaste samhället i Sverige och jag undrar om inte det stämmer. Det är antagligen därför jag älskar det där stället så mycket.
Jag flyttade upp till Malung 1993 för att plugga på Hotell & Restaurangprogrammet. Jag gick klart utbildningen men jag hade hittat något som var roligare än att laga mat - Musik!

Jag flyttade till Stockholm men efter två-tre år var jag tillbaka i Malung för att starta firma & därmed börja spela på heltid. Detta är 12 år sedan. Otroliga år då jag fått göra det jag vill helst. Det har varit hårt jobb, mycket slit men på något galet sätt är det värt det.

Numera har vi ett distansförhållande, Malung & jag, då jag har bosatt mig i Stockholm. Men "amor vincit omnia", kärleken övervinner allt, säger dom ju!

I skrivande stund är vi på väg till Malung, min gitarrist Jonas & jag. Det är vecka 29 & det innebär dansbandsvecka, vilket är kult. Vi ska spela på Grönlandsscenen imorgon torsdag kl 13.15. Resten av musikerna sluter upp på plats. Det ska bli så kul att träffa en massa gamla kompisar & förhoppningsvis festa lite på kvällen också.

Må solen lysa på oss nu! Ciao

Tivedstorp

Detta kommer bli en riktigt trevlig kväll och det ser ut att vara världens mysigaste ställe ute i skogen. Vi kör lite mer avskalat & akustiskt denna kväll. Det blir Jonas på gitarr, Coffa på bas & så jag då :-)
Välkomna!

Alison Krauss

On my way to Gothenburg for the Alison Krauss consert. One of my friends told me yesterdays consert was "so great, it was almost unpleasant." My expectation are enormous!

My love and I are staying at a hotel and tomorrow is the big shoppingday :-)

Lasse i Parken

Thanks for a perfect evening. Sunny, warm, lots of nice people, music, värmländska Dingo's, good food AND love was in the air.

Pigge Mattis, you did a great job on guitar and mandolin. So now I'm really looking forward to Malung and "dansveckan".

It was so nice to see some of my new friends from the States and Morten from Oslo.
And of course the love of my life and all of our friends. So much fun!

Now I take a long weekend off and I'm going to Gothenburg and the consert with Allison Krauss. Yeehaaa!

Diego!

Gone fishing!

I'm in the deep forrest of Tiveden. Almost the best spot on earth I think. The silence, the lakes, the birds singing...a place where you can just breath on. The last week I have done my bookkeeping and it's SO boring but Tiveden will be my bonus for hard work.

Tomorrow evening I'm back at Idas Brygga in Karlsborg, where the food is "heavenly"! I start at 9 pm. On Saturday I'll be visiting Mr Ulf at Hamnkrogen in Hjo. The Hjo-gig is beetween 10 pm and 1 am. I'm looking forward to a perfekt weekend! Take care! Puss & Kram Annis

Ferry

We are on the Ferry between Puttgarden and Rödby in Denmark. It's 4.30 in the morning. We don't look like we use to. Coffa could be Jonas or even a man from Finland, building a new sauna.
We have left a pair of underwear in every city we went to during this tour. If you find them, you can keep them. Over and out!

Amsterdam

I don't know what to think about this city. I like the neat houses and that it has an air of Venice (except for the coffee houses and the naked women in the windows of course).

Today I've been doing some shopping on my own. I don't now what the guys are doing but we're suppose to meet at Dwaze Zaken at 6 pm for dinner. Then sound check and gig. It seems like a very nice venue so this will be great as we are doing our last gig on this tour. I'm longing for my bed and bath room now :-)
