Magnus Ekelund & Jakob Hellman joined us for some sessions.

Today we recorded two sessions, the first one with Magnus Ekelund who is currently supporting Jakob Hellman on tour and will be releasing a new album in the middle of May. The second one we did with Jakob Hellman, well known artist since his “…Och stora havet” was released 1989. We are so glad that both of them wanted to join us in the hammock and the sessions will be posted here when released.

If you hurry you can see them both perform at Scharinska tonight!

The final day at Umeå Open 2012 and we did a couple of recordings with awesome bands on Saturday.

Navet, Vånna Inget, Vulkano & Che Sudaka did all a wonderful job entertaining us with their music and all these sessions will be so great. A big thanks to all of the bands that joined us this week and made this such a awesome festival and also to the production team from Humlan that made things so easy for us at the festival area.
