About Scott and Johanna Hongell-Darsee
Scott and Johanna are a duo who perform early traditional Scandinavian/Celtic ballads and tales. Their wanderings have led them from Finland and Iowa respectively - through Europe, Scandinavia, India, and the U.S. On the way they have picked up tales and songs that they perform together with the stories behind them, in particular exploring the links between Scandinavian, Celtic, North American and other story singing traditions. Their performances have been described as magical, inspiring, haunting and mesmerizing.
