“Triangle bluegrass fans are well-acquainted with Jan Johansson, former fiddler with New Vintage and a popular music teacher steeped in the music of his native Sweden and that of Bill Monroe. On the self-produced CD "Kindred," Johansson adapts a dozen Swedish folk tunes to bluegrass instrumentation in a remarkable convergence of styles. Leading the way on guitar, Johansson is joined by a trio of Triangle pickers: Ivan Rosenberg (resophonic guitar), Lindsey Tims (mandolin) and Rick Lassiter (bass). Their clever arrangements apply bluegrass flavors to a diverse menu of Old World tunes. The loping stride of "Epiphany March" ("Trettondagsmarschen"), the quickstep ramble of "Walking Tune from Granges" ("Ganglat Fran Gr…nges") and the old pub favorite "Fredman's Song No. 21" would fit comfortably in the repertoires of guitar greats”
