On the 3rd of October 2008, Ane Brun and her band played a show
in a sold out Stockholm Concert Hall. It was the last gig of a 4 month-long
European tour. �The
night was recorded by director Magnus Renfors, who also did several of Ane
Brun’s videos, such as “The Treehouse Song,” “The Puzzle,” “Don’t Leave” and
more.�
Now it’s coming out as the live CD and DVD  Ane Brun -Live at Stockholm Concert Hall, on Nov. 29
initially via iTunes no less.

 

“It became a special night in many ways,” she
explained, in a press release. “I invited a few special guests, musicians and
artists, to appear with me on stage. Sivert Höyem from Madrugada was there, and
together we performed a stripped down version of the song “Lift Me.” The
guitarist Staffan Johansson, who appears on many of my recordings, came and
played so achingly beautifully on the song “Sleeping by the Fyris River”
among others.”

 

A choir consisting of the voices of First Aid Kit, Anna
Ternheim ,Lisa Ekdahl, Tobias Fröberg, Elin Sigvardsson, Rebekka Karijord, Jimi
Harlevi, Mattias Blomdahl,  Anja “Montys Loco” Bigrell and Liv “Don’t be a
stranger” Widell appeared on stage on a few songs and added to the magical
atmosphere of the concert hall. �Johan Persson (accordion and keyboards) and Ulf
Strömqvist (percussion) joined the  musicians on stage, Martin Hederos (piano),
Erik Nilsson (drums), Linnea Olson (cello), Nina Kinert (add.vocals), Per
Björling (bass) and Anna Rodell(violin). â�¨A

 

“As a musician and an artist I had a perfect experience on
stage. I don’t expect to be 100% presence in body and soul on a night like
this, since it can be difficult to feel that considering the circumstances and
the expectations of a sold out room.  But on this particular night I was
totally there! I watched the audience, my fellow musicians, I listened to them
and to us, and I could take it all in. I really enjoyed it to the fullest and I
will never forget it.”
