Tallest Man on Earth is the moniker of the folk musician Kristian Matsson of Dalarna, Sweden. Check it:
Kristian completes what has become known as the “Swedish Trinity” here at the Library. Our director, Magnus Toren (Father), is Swedish. So is Kristian (Son.) So are Dungen (Holy Spirit(s)), the incredible, propulsive, and shockingly talented band of forest hippie-types, who’ll play here Sept. 26th.
Needless to say, Hippie Sven (Virgin Mary?) is stoked:
There are some who say that Sweden’s quest for world domination began and ended with the Vikings. They kinda missed out on the whole 19th century colonization craze, contented with their icy little island (is it an island?),
Well, don’t be so sure. There’s such a thing as a subtle conquest, through, say, stoney, folksy, Deep Purple-meets-Led Zeppelin III jams.
The Swedes are sneaky, tenacious!
