The award-winning Swedish quintet Jaerv presents an extroverted, vigorous and heartfelt folk music with influences from both jazz and pop music. Together, the five members have created a homogeneous, vivid sound which has established Jaerv on the folk music scene as well as in many other forums. Rooted in multiple musical traditions, Jaerv offers a varied stage performance where vocal, five-voiced tunes blend in with energetic dances and free improvisations. Jaerv is known internationally, and has toured the U.S., Japan, Spain, Scotland, Ireland, Finland, and Norway, among other countries. Their discography includes Inrikes (2009), Vol 2 (2014), and their critically acclaimed 2016 album, Under den linden. — www.jaerv.com
