JANNE SCHAFFER MÖTER TED GÄRDESTAD
Janne Schaffer meets Ted Gärdestad in the concert "Sol Vind & Vatten" (Sun Wind and Water).
After the success of "Sol Vind & Vatten", we now come with a whole new performance. A tribute to Ted and Kenneth Gärdestad, their music, life and love. A concert that goes straight into the heart.
Participants are Janne Schaffer, Pernilla Andersson, Johan Boding and chapel master Peter Ljung with some of Sweden's best musicians.
Janne Schaffer - World-class guitar giant who has played with several major world performers. Janne tells personally about his friendship with Ted, about memorable moments and how the songs came about. He was in the making of Ted's music from the beginning of 1971, and then featured on almost all of Ted's records until Janne produced the final album "Äntligen på väg". He was one of few who came Ted really close.
Pernilla Andersson - After eight studio albums, tour achievements and Swedish Grammy nominations such as "The Composer of the Year" and "The Artist of the Year" and one of George Martin's individually awarded producer prizes, Pernilla 2016 released the album "Tiggrinnan". The album was critically acclaimed, tour followed during the year and Pernilla was nominated for a Swedish Grammy in the "Singer-Songwriter" category.
Johan Boding - One of Sweden's foremost singers again offers a selection of Ted Gärdestad's fantastic songs. Many recognize Johan Boding as the front figure for countless successes with tribute concerts to Queen and Freddie Mercury. He has also been touring with Rhapsody in Rock.
Ted Gärdestad and his music make me warm about the heart. It feels glorious and is with love I'm taking part in this tour, says Johan Boding.
