Folk & Rackare was one of the most influential Swedish folk bands of the seventies. The group was founded in Gothenburg by Carin Kjellman and Ulf Gruvberg. Then, as now, convincing arrangements of vocal harmonies and electric and mediaeval instrument coupled with Carin Kjellman’s impressive voice lend the band its distinct sound.

Folk & Rackare’s unique repertoire of Swedish folk music later grew to also include Norwegian ballads and songs when two Norwegians joined the group. During the late 1970s, the band performed at several major European folk festivals. Folk & Rackare has gotten back together in recent years, playing at Skagenfestivalen, Norrbostämman and Oslo’s Riksscenen. Garmarna and Ranarim are just two of many folk bands that were inspired by Folk & Rackare’s songs.
