John Mitchell & Sofie Jonsson

For fans of:Dougie MacLean, Dick Gaughan, Fairport Convention

John Mitchell from Scotland (guitar & vocals) and Sofie Jonsson from Sweden (fiddle & vocals) have built their own unique, acoustic sound on a firm foundation of folk music from Scotland, America, and Sweden. Vocal harmonies blend with fiddle and guitars, and songs are mixed with instrumentals, and original material with traditional pieces.

Recent gigs include Fasching in Stockholm (the Manifest on Tour 2015 finals), the Peace & Love festival 2016 in Borlänge, Magasinet Falun (the Dalecarlia Music Awards 2016), and Tootsies in Nashville last year. We were nominated in the best live music experience category at the Dalecarlia Music Awards 2016, and in the folk music of the year category at the Dalecarlia Music Awards 2015. We are the 2016 ambassadors for the Swedish showcase festival Folk at Heart. Our 2011 album Western Highways gathered reviews such as "folk music beyond the ordinary" (Sur la Route de Memphis Magazine, France).
