Tonights music from a good Swedish friend….Mats Eden. Beginning with Groupa in the late 70’s-early 80’s up to the present, Mats musical career has expanded to include teaching, composing (both folk-based world music and classical), touring and recording. He has spent much time at the feet of older Swedish master musicians learning their craft in the time-honored way. Among others he has learned from Oscar Andersson, Mångskog, Värmalnd, and Pekkos-Gustav, Binsjö, Dalarna. Mats has also studied much in Norway. He has appeared in the Twin Cities at Nordic Fest and should be coming again this year.

So hop in baby let’s cruise out of here
Yeah this ain’t the place to be
And if you get tired along the way
Baby we can roll down the back seat
From Wausau to Wichita, Oconowauc Beach
Yeah, we’ve got places to see
So c’mon baby, let’s go for a ride with my red Checker wagon and me
