Taube, Evert

Taube

Evert Taube (1890–1976) was a Swedish author, artist, composer and singer. He is widely regarded as one of Sweden's most respected musicians and the foremost troubadour of the Swedish ballad tradition in the 20th century.

Bergmann Edition offers you two of Taube’s ballads sensitively arranged for solo guitar by Joakim Lundström.  These are beautiful and affecting songs, and make excellent guitar pieces. Hear the haunting original of ‘Byssan Lull’ sung by Taube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qo1L7NjcyDk  and ‘Så skimrande var aldrig havet’ sung by Taube’s son, the actor and singer Sven Bertil Taube, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-LpRAdHL9g
