The new cd of Swedish Nyckelharpa & Scottish Harp by Olov Johansson & Catriona McKay - FOOGY.

Catriona & Olov met for the first time in Stockholm 2002 at a concert they shared with their bands, Väsen from Sweden and Shetland based Fiddlers Bid.
Backstage before the concert Catriona asked Olov Do you know this one? and played Eric Sahlströms Spelmansglädje, the most played Nyckelharpa tune ever!
They both really enjoyed the sound and the music they made together that afternoon and that created a desire to further develop the collaboration.
The next opportunity to play was at the Celtic Connections 2007 concert Fiddlers Bid International and since then they have met regularly. After a very fun tour of Sweden in the summer of 2008 they decided to make a cd.
FOOGY is a recording of traditional and new music from Scotland and Sweden by Catriona McKay and Olov Johansson. It presents their way of making music and explores the stunning sound of Scottish Harp and Swedish Nyckelharpa.
