Please note!
Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. I guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
Thanks- Cliff, cdRoots

Mats Eden (composer) - Apple Blossom
An album that focuses on Mats Eden as composer, with 16 performances of his pieces played by a variety of artists in a number of styles from folk to classical to contemporary art music.

Mats Eden - Pastern
Mats' solo album of fiddle and diatonic accordion tunes, both newly composed and traditional from sweden and Norway. Seth Premo writes in RootsWorld: 'an exhibition of his fiddle playing and interpretation style in a tr17.99 and though it is not unsentimental, it has a consistently strong energy about it.'

Mats Eden - Struling
The great Varmland fiddler's first solo recording. It features lots of great solo fiddling from Eden (and a bit of accordion, too), plus ensemble work with a then-as-now all-star cast of musicians: Tina Johansson, Ellika Frisell, Rickard Astrom and Stefan Ekedahl offering percussion, violin, piano and cello. The music runs from strict traditional Swedish tunes to a tribute to Gambian musician Alagi M'Bye. This was cutting edge when it was made, and it is still unique and powerful music all these years later.

Mats Eden - Avtryck

Mats Eden, Daniel Sanden-Warg, Leif Stinnerbom, Magnus Stinnerbom - Anno 2010
An award winning album of folk fiddling from Sweden by a quartet of masters. Andrew Cronshaw wrote in his fRoots review: 'For some they play all together, for some they split into duos, trio or solo, on fiddles, the sympathetic-stringed viola d'amore and violin d'amore whose incorporation into Swedish folk music have stemmed largely from the work of these musicians, or adding in moraharpa, diatonic accordion and harmonica. No bass instruments, just the dense textures of all those harmonising and droning bowed strings and wheezing reeds, and massive drive.'

Lena Willemark, Mats Öberg and Jonas Knutsson - Alla Drömmars Sång
Three of Sweden's most respsected performers in any genre, vocalist and violist Lena Willemark, pianist Mats Öberg and reeed player Jonas Knutsson together create a whole new folk-art form for Sweden. They have all worked together in folk, jazz and art music ensembles for decades, and here they mix traditional material from Lena's home of Älvdalen with own original pieces and a surprising cover of The Beatles with a strong sense of unity, in a recording created in one day, as they simply let go and just played music. Highly recommended.

Djivan Gasparyan - Apricots from Eden
Gasparyan is featured here performing Armenian folk songs and melodies from Armenia's Pagan and Christian traditions.

Sandén-Warg, Berglund, Rydberg, Lund, Gorset and Claeson - Schodsbergs Notebok
Daniel Sandén-Warg, Mats Berglund, Lisa Rydberg, Vegard Lund, Hans Olav Gorset and Ludvig Claeson present the music of Johannes Nielsen Schodsberg, born on the Schodsberg farm in Aremark, Østfold county, in 1799. A small manuscript consisting of 160 pieces of music exists from these years. How was Johannes Nielsen Schodsberg's music played? On this cd, we would like to illustrate two different versions, which have their origin in the two distinct musical worlds that converge in his tune book. Seldom does one see such a good example of a cultural convergence as the young musician's notes, in which his own folk tradition from the border regions stands side by side with minuets, quadrilles, and marches from the milieu of the trained musician. Mats and Daniel play tunes from the manuscript with an emphasis on dance fiddling, and the Schodsberg Ensemble plays arranged versions inspired by early classical textures and harmony.

Groupa - Silent Folk
Groupa plays its own brand of Nordic music. Giving the music freer rein and new colours, Groupa excels in the joy of expanding to new musical dimensions. The original band was founded in 1980, and has along with other groups been a vanguard of the progressive folk music scene in Sweden since the 80’s. Ever since the start, Groupa has been a very popular live band. Mats Edén on fiddles; Jonas Simonson on flutes and Terje Isungset on percussion. The purchase of this CD is for a contribution to support RootsWorld, the magazine and radio show of the world's music.

Uhrbrand-Lydom-Cahill - Spring, with Mats Vingin and Peter Rosendal
Originally formed as a trio in 1998. Peter Uhrbrand, Sonnich Lydom and Sèamus Cahill has now been joined by two outstanding jazz musicians Mads Vinding (bass) and Peter Rosendal (piano) in what can only be described as a rare meeting of musical genres, that of folk and jazz. In a sense Spring is not only a meeting of different musical styles, but also a meeting of the great traditions of Nordic and Celtic music. One of the band members is an Irishman now settled in Denmark and so it seemed natural that songs from the Irish tradition should also be included on this CD. ULC's choice of material blends beautifully together.

Bengt Berger - Beches Brew Big
The quintet from Bengt Berger's much praised last album Beches Brew has grown to nine members in this live recording from two nights in Stockholm and Gothenburg, likewise the music has grown in depth, power and expression. The mix of tradition and new modes of expression as well as the impulses from some of the great traditions of the world and the collective approach to ensembles and solo work shows a strong relationship to Charles Mingus way of making music. Some of the best and most personal musicians in Sweden are necessary for this: Violinist Livet Nord; saxophonists Thomas Gustafsson, Jonas Knutsson and Sir Thomas Jäderlund; Keyboard genius Mats Öberg; Göran Klinghagen and Max Schultz on banjos and guitars; Stefan Bellnäs, bass and Bengt Berger on drums.
