A typical concert given by Eklund, my band of folk musicians.
We have begun to use a little dry ice at our feet, emerging through a cloud of it onto stage, as if we have walked from a previous time through a time portal. Usually, the stage is set with our equipment - mikes, amplifiers and seats. Those band members who need to sit do, usually our drummers. And then we begin with some eerie sounds from the violin and mandolin.
First song is sung. We link it to our second song.
We move around on stage for the third song, and revert to original places for the next three songs, only I move during our song to Freyja.
From the seventh song until the ninth (and last song) we change positions again, with the female band members at the front, for harmonies.
All the time the dry ice is used on stage, and at close we all line up, and take a bow. Only one, and then with instruments in hand we return into a fog of dry ice!
Obviously, sometimes we have to adapt to the venue, and sometimes we can't use the dry ice. We do enjoy hearing the applause we get, and we appreciate it a good deal. We have started to sell band sweaters, which we have printed for us through a t-shirt printing company in Malmo.
