Biography

Uppsala, Sweden (1969 – 1981)

Founded 1969 in Uppsala, Sweden, Arbete och Fritid (“work and spare-time”), played a unique kind of progressive 70’s folk, inspired mainly by jazz, rock, psychedelic and traditional Swedish tunes. Although they did compose some music of their own, most of their output was interpretations or improvisations on traditional folk tunes.

The band had several line-ups up before they disbanded in 1981; Bosse Skoglund, Tord Bengtsson, Roland Keijser, Torsten Eckerman, Ove Karlsson (who later would go on to form Nya Ljudbolaget), and Tord Bengtsson who later joined Hellzephyrs poporkester and have also appeared in the Bitter Funeral Beer Band. In 1971 the poet Rolf Lundqvist joined and the group released it’s first album “Slottsbergets Hambo & Andra Valser” (“castle hill’s hambo & other waltzes”) in 1972. In 1975, Thomas Mera Gartz, who previously had played with Träd, gräs & stenar, also joined the group.
