Some people like their instruments with more strings than others...

Progressive sing-along is a novel idea, I don't see it taking off anytime soon.

Rikard seldom plays the accordion, except at gigs in Uppsala.

Very nice photos, thank you for uploading. I am one of the performers (with the PRG RCK t-shirt) - do you mind if I use the photo as my facebook profile picture?

 

Regards!

Said to hear the festival is closing.  Your photos of the happening have been excellent.  Hopefully something will come along to fill the void.

How disappointing that the festival is ending! Do the participants know that you have all these wonderful photos? Since it is ending I'm sure they will be glad to know that you have all these well-documented moments and memories...

The people in the Swedish art rock society Crimson have seen most of my good shots over the years and many of the bands have been in touch about using my photos. It is too bad that this era is over, but we have had many good acts over the years.
