Hazelius Hedin in the studio

Hazelius_Hedin-inspelning_2014-press

During spring the duo Hazelius Hedin has spent a few weeks in the “studio” – that actually is a nice cottage that we have chosen. It is found in Johan’s home village Vråka in south-east Sweden. That’s a place where it’s peaceful and quiet and a good acoustic environment for our music. We have arranged new songs and recorded some fine versions. The new album has no name yet It will be released by Cosmos Music Group during the fall.

During two days Rita Laydon from Colorado has recorded Pelle Björnlert and I playing many tunes together. This will hopefully be released on a DVD in Rita’s extensive series of Swedish musicians. The earlier productions can be found here: www.ritaleydon.com
