      The spiritual home of Sväng is Finnish folk music. Ever since the group was established, traditional tunes from Finland and other countries have been a part of its repertoire alongside original compositions. After years of playing and touring together and the release of 8 albums the time now felt right to go back to the roots and work on an album featuring only Finnish traditional music.

      In Trad We Trust pays homage to Finnish folk music in its various forms: the ancient runo-singing tradition, kantele and jouhikko playing, a huge diversity of vocal styles and the instrumental virtuosity of the younger pelimanni music tradition. On this album Sväng wanted to present what they consider the jewels of Finnish folk music and render them into their own versions with high respect towards the original performances. Check out the booklet for more information on the tracks.
