Wrong Turn Right video from Original Five

In covering the Swedish bluegrass scene this past few years, we’ve been struck by the depth and maturity of the music made there. In particular, the songwriting stands out as fresh and original, not least in that these artists write and sing in English, a secondary language for most of them.

A perfect example comes to us today from The Original Five, a band from Malmö that has been together since 2010. They perform widely in Europe, and have just released this music video for Wrong Turn Right, one of the songs on their upcoming album, Across The Deep Blue Sea.


The Original Five is Johan Bandling Melin on guitar and banjo, Dan Englund on bass, Johan Malmberg on fiddle and banjo, Daniel Olsson on reso-guitar, Ola Persson on mandolin, and Jonas Svahn on guitar.

Look for Across The Deep Blue Sea April 15 on Rootsy Records.
