Eva Dahlgren to join Tomas Ledin on stage

Tomas Ledin will give a one hour concert in Skansen, Stockholm, next Juny 24th.

This concert will take place right after “Allsång på Skansen” show. Usually all the artists who participate in the “Allsång” show go on with the show for an hour. This time it will be only one artist who will entertain the audience. Tomas Ledin, who celebrates his 40 years as an artist, has participated in many Allsång in the past, this time the stage is his for one full hour.

But he won’t be alone. Tomas has invited a couple of Swedish artists to join him on stage on this special evening. And yes, Eva Dahlgren will be one of them. Eva and Tomas toured together back in 1992 with Rocktåget and they also participated in “Så mycket bättre” last year. Other artists to join Tomas on stage are E-Type and Timbuktu (who participated in the same Så mycket bättre as Eva and Tomas), Måns Zelmerlöw and Niklas Strömstedt.

Tomas’ show will be broadcast on SVT and starts at 21:00.

More information can be found on Tomas’ website.

Eva Dahlgren at Så mycket bättre

Eva Dahlgren is one of the 7 artists who participates in the 2nd season of Swedish TV4 Så mycket bättre. You can watch the videos of the weekly program on TV4’s website (you might need Premium access to see some of them).
In addition, the songs are also available on Spotify (Sweden only).
And last but not least, the tracks can also be purchased on iTunes. Again, Sweden only, unfortunately.
According to CDON, a CD will be released on December 12, 2011 with some of the tracks performed by the artists. So far no tracklist is available, but as far as I could see last year’s CD didn’t contain all songs but only 2-3 per artist.

Update December 11: Eva has performed these songs. The last chapter of the season will be next Saturday, where the artists will perform various duets together.

Tomas Ledin’s day: Never Again
Timbuktu’s day: Socker (Strö lite söcker på mig) – she even recorded a video for this one

 

Lena Philipsson’s day: Standing In My Rain
E-Type’s day: This Is The Way
Laleh’s day: Call On Me
Mikael Wiehe’s day: Mitt hjärtas fågel

Interview with Eva Dahlgren about new album

Jan Gradvall interviewed Eva Dahlgren while she is in New York. Eva is currently mixing the songs for “Så mycket bättre” which will be on TV4 in Autumn and explains that afterwards she will “hopefully have a nice writing period” and talks about doing something with music again.
Eva also talks about the equipment she uses in her home studio and that she currently listens to Adele and Rihanna (!).

Eva Dahlgren website has been redesigned

Evadahlgren.com got a new style and some new sections.

On the website you will now find links to Eva’s videos (to Efva Attling jewels and glasses), pictures done by Eva (many of Efva Attling) as well as discography, information about her books and tour (when there is any, that is).

And a funny side note: the covers of some of the albums used on the discography are still the ones I scanned myself many years ago and are actually scans of MY LPs/CDs 😉

Rumour: Eva Dahlgren to participate in “Så mycket bättre”?

According to some Swedish newspapers, Eva Dahlgren is going to take part in the 2nd edition of TV4 programe “Så mycket bättre”.

Other artists are supposed to be Tomas Ledin, Timbuktu, Mikael Wiehe, Lena Philipsson and Laleh. This info hasn’t been confirmed by Eva’s management or TV4, so I take it as rumours so far.

The first season of “Så mycket bättre” run on TV4 last Autumn with stars such as Lasse Berghagen, Lill Babs or Thomas Di Leva. The 7 artists spent a week in a hotel in Sweden, each of the artists had a day dedicated to themselves where this artist had to organise activities for the other participating artists, and the other artists performed cover versions of the “artist-of-the-day” songs. The show consisted of 8 chapters which were aired between October and December 2010. Wikipedia has a full list of songs which were performed.

In addition, a compilation album including these cover songs was released after the season 1 was over.
