About the artists:
Sven Swan-White rides along the path: Thus begins the medieval ballad from whence Swedish folk music group Svanevit gets its name. The tale of Sven Svanevit takes place during the Middle Ages. In a world full of magic, mythical creatures and shining knights, Sven Svanevit rides towards adventure.

The tale of the Swedish folk music group Svanevit takes place in the here and now. It begins with four eminent Swedish folk musicians and their music. What they create is both new and modern and at the same time retrospective, drawing inspiration from the past. Each and every element of the music is filled with an anticipation and narrative zest that allows the tale to continue giving the sounds, magic and legends a chance to live on in our time.

The tale continues – listen and let the myth live!

Most 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. We 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.
