Svea Singers sing
traditional Swedish folksongs a capella. They are from Grand Marais,
Minnesota and first got together when Grand Marais put on their first
Hygge Festival in ‘tropical’ February.
Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux
is a children's author, actress and storyteller. Rose grew up going to
Swedish camp and many Midsummer festivals and is an all-around
loves to sing and has sung most of her life, and is a staple in the
Grand Marais music scene. She's new to Swedish music and language-- and
has an obvious talent for cooking and eating, a hidden talent for
singing, and no talent at all for mechanical things or being indirect.
You can find her exploring the woods with her family and pets in Grand
Marais, Minnesota, or leading local kids on various adventures
plays violin and piano in addition to singing. She was a professional
choral singer in Philadelphia before moving to Minnesota. She teaches
high school choir in Grand Marais. Though she grew up in Nashville and
had never even met a Lutheran before moving to MN, she still got all
the Lutheran jokes on Prairie Home Companion.
