Even though Bluegrass music is uniquely American, it appeals to musicians around the world. Barb Heller recently spoke with two members of The Long Gone Smiles Band, who play, sing, perform, and write songs in the style of the bluegrass and country masters.
Michael Lindgren and Birgitta Adamson live in Stockholm, Sweden. Their band recently released a new album called More For The Money. They also have MANY other talents besides music: Birgitta is a gardener, builder, painter and restoration artist, and Michael has authored two books, built houses, restores Harley Davidson motorcyles, and creates museum-quality duplications of Leonardo da Vinci’s 15th century machines.
But they both say the thing they like most is making music. Barb spoke with them recently via Skype from Stockholm.
