Ransäterspôjkera - kom igen!
Now Ransäterspôjkera are going again - with their first CD!
In 1985 Ransäterspôjkera became Swedish champions of "gammaldansmusik" (old-time dance music)
and was the band that concentrated most on "gammeldansmusik" of all Swedish groups during the 1970s and 1980s. The repertoire
was based on the Swedish tune tradition, especially that of Värmland, and also on the Swedish and Norwegian melodeon traditions.
In 1988 Ransäterspôjkera ceased to play due to a diminished interest in "gammeldans". In 2005, after 17 years of silence,
Ransäterspôjkera come back with full power and music bubbling with joy!
" So now it's time for a heavy come back, to the undiminished joy of all gammeldans lovers.
And if I remember correctly, it sounds as if the pause has lasted 17 minutes - not years. Ransäterspôjkera still have
that special drive in their music and play with an awesome swing. "
Björn Stefanson, Värmlands folkblad
" During the 70s and 80s Ransäterspôjkera was one of the best known bands in this country.
With a number of LPs behind it their first CD offers both old and new material. 18 swinging tunes, where about a third are
composed by Gert Ohlsson, who has been with the band from the beginning. Just move away the kitchen chairs and table
for a dance! "
