|Description of www.fridhammar.com|
website focusing on various aspects of the vibrant blues and roots music
scene of the city of Gothenburg (a.k.a. Göteborg), Sweden.
Mainly written in the Swedish language (with some exceptions: see below).
The centerpiece of the website is the well visited "GigKalender": a detailed and daily updated calendar of live blues & roots music in the Gothenburg area.
In addition, the calendar page also features the following weekly updates
• thoughts from the Editor (Christer) on the local music scene in general and on live gigs in particular
• the Editor's favourite picks from his vinyl LP collection (now an archive)
• the Editor's recommendations of music available from the world of Spotify
The web pages are illustrated with photography by Vanja. Samples of her photography can be found below: the links defined as years lead to her photography documenting the Gothenburg Blues Party: the yearly local blues festival in Gothenburg. (She did not attend the 2010 festival because of a US trip.)
The Picasa Album presents various albums of live music photography.
Vanja's photographs can also be found on cd booklets, on music posters, in music magazines and on musicians' websites.
