Torbjörn & Pär Näsbom
As long as they can remember they've been playing together. Born and raised in the province of Uppland, they learned to play the fiddle from their father. Growing up in a house full of music, they came in contact with many fiddlers and folk-musicians. Eric Sahlström was one. And so was Viksta Lasse.
Torbjörn - Born in Kyrkbyn, the home county of the nyckelharpa, it was only natural for Torbjörn to play around with keys and tuning understrings strings. The nyckelharpa has now spread all over Sweden and beyond her borders, but no one plays it quite like Torbjörn.
Pär - moved to Winterthur, Switzerland, more than twentyfive years ago were he lives with his family, working as a musician.
Despite the big distance separating them, the boys have kept playing together all these years and have been touring around the world playing their Uppland-tunes. Now, both in their fifties, they have made their first and long awaited CD together: "Upptakt“: It features a couple of their own tunes, their father Lars' famous Kyrkpolska, and many tunes after Viksta-Lasse they have played since childhood.
