Gig of the decade (so far), official. I had heard of First Aid Kit for a fair while being a fan of Scandinavian music, so was really looking forward to this. I told Jan they would be a bit special, but I didn’t realise quite how much. Klara & Johanna Soderberg are two young sisters (16 & 19) from Sweden who make simple but stunning folk music with an American flavour (but so much more interesting than you would think). It’s their superb singing and harmonies that really make it great and the simplicity of their songs and arrangements adds to the charm and intimacy, especially in a live setting. Sneaky Pete’s is a tiny club and I think the sell out audience were expecting something nice so the atmosphere was perfect.
