Blue Eyed Blondes: Home – Where is it?

Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - 6:30pm

With Swedish songs, both traditional and modern, as their travel companion, the Swedish folk and country duo Blue Eyed Blondes is on tour to retrace their roots and a family history of immigration. They seek to explore common factors between the past and the present and tell stories about Swedish immigrants’ life changing journeys.

Their music expresses restlessness, a longing for a home and the courage to follow a dream of a new life lived somewhere else.

Lina Lönnberg and Kristoffer Emanuelsson, making their first visit to the Midwest, founded Blue Eyed Blondes in 2008. They have performed at a variety of locations and venues over the years, playing stripped-down acoustic music, influenced by old-time, Swedish folk, gospel and bluegrass traditions. At the center of their music are good stories and soulful voices, accompanied by guitar, banjo, harmonica and accordion.
