Band Bio: This October, Premo & Gustavsson will release their debut album on a tour throughout the Midwest and Northeast. Swedish nyckelharpa player Anna Gustavsson and American fiddler and banjo player Laurel Premo have forged a new collaboration that weaves together the driving dance-based music traditions from their home countries. With great technical skill and creative sensitivity, Premo & Gustavsson draw not only from deep roots but also their adventuresome musicality as 21st century musicians.
