Anders Löfberg – cello


Anders grew up in the folk music milieu of Småland. He played the fiddle, learning primarily from his parents, and early on became familiar with dance tunes. He has a degree from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm with fiddle and cello as his principle instruments. Anders has worked with musicians such as Roger Tallroth, Annbjørg Lien, Bjarke Falgren, Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Ryan Drickey, the Norwegian folk rock band Valkyrien Allstars, Susanne Rosenberg, Anne Hytta, Gjermund Larsen, Filip Jers and more. Anders is also a talented double bass player and has played, amongst other things, klezmer, jazz and reggae.

Within theatre, storytelling and dance, Anders is a much-appreciated musician and dancer, and has participated in productions with Västanå teater, Norska Riksteatern, RESiDANS, Villniss, Fabula Storytelling, and with names such as Leif Stinnerbom, Carl-Olof Berg, Susanne Marko, Kersti Ståbi, Anna Öberg and Silje Onstad Hålien.

Although traditional folk music lies close to Anders’ heart, this in no way contradicts a desire to develop folk music, which also makes him a creative, experimental and responsive musician. Rhythm, pulse and improvisation are regular features in his music.

Apart from Nordic, Anders can be heard together with Majorstuen (N), Bjarke Falgren and Strings At Hand (DK), dance company Villniss (N), Silje Onstad Hålien (N), Emilia Amper (SE), Anna Lindblad (SE) and Annbjørg Lien (N).
