A week at Götaplatsen....


.with Bo Kaspers Orkester, Daniel Adams-Ray, Liv Warfield, Laleh....and Göteborgsoperans Danskompani

The story of a (mobile) ceramic fountain that crossed the Atlantic twice....


Created by Gunnar Nylund at Rörstrand and aimed for the company's exhibition at National Museum in Stockholm 1943, while the permanent exhibition were evacuated due to the II World War.



The fountain landed later at the NK Department Store in Stockholm between 1944-45, and then back to Rörstrands headquarters in Lidköping.



Later it was sold to Grand Centralhotellet in Gävle, and stayed there in the "winter garden", until a fire destroyed part of the hotel under the late 1960`s. It was then stored for some years. Sold to a farmer in Iowa during the year of 1972, and assembled with Portland cement (!) at his farm.



Partially destroyed under a few decades by a severe climate in North America.



 Back to Lidköping in 2008….in a very bad shape.

Graveyard at Liseberg....

Liseberg, August 6, 2014, foto: fotoscenen

Graveyard carries the influences of Zeppelin, Purple and definitely the melodic ability of Rainbow. The lead singer has a fantastic voice and he is the bands fifth instrument. Some songs are really good, especially when the band does big rhythmic changes, wich creates the most epic moments of the concert. Unfortunately, there are no bigger audiences for this kind of music any more.

For sure....not the last time I witnessed their concerts.

Até sempre Carlos....

Bullerö, 23-7-2014

Cantava, em uma voz muito suave, uma canção de pais longínquo. A música tornava familiares as palavras incógnitas. Parecia o fado para a alma, mas não tinha com ele semelhança alguma. A canção dizia, pelas palavras veladas e a melodia humana, coisas que estão na alma de todos e que ninguém conhece.

Bob Dylan at Trädgårdsföreningen....

Trädgårdsföreningen, August, 15

Bob Dylan 2014 is a "slow train coming" behind the piano. Many of the songs are recognizable by the lyrics....and the music is a tool for a changed voice, with lack of energy. Dylan shines thru the closer he gets to the blues....here he knows his lesson, and the band does an excellent job. Best in show: "Blowin` in the wind"

A little note about the five kids sitting in front of me with Dylan T-shirts and continually with concentration on the smartphones....something wrong with the real world ??
