"Somewhere between Balintore on Scotland’s North East coast and Sweden there is probably a wee star twinkling and radiating an abundance of creative warmth and affection that manifests itself in the musical collaboration of John Mitchell & Sofie Jonsson."
David Shannon, Scots Music
Hello and welcome to our website!
We hope you like our new youtube series "Johns veranda"! A little bit like Swedish hit TV series Jills veranda, but filmed on John's veranda in Sälen, Sweden! Music, guest artists, and interviews, plus some great scenery from the hill. This is how it works: we will release a new episode every Friday night at 7 pm Swedish time (= 6 pm Scottish time/12 noon Nashville time) on https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLyd4NMfUTibUPE1VRT9o1zvKSLLvf67Xl. At around 19.10, the release will be followed by a live broadcast on http://www.facebook.com/johnandsofiemusic (where you will be able to comment and chat to us!). Then we will go straight to Periscope: search for johnandsofie ! See you on Johns veranda! :)
We are so happy to have been nominated in the "best live music experience" category at the Swedish Dalecarlia Music Awards 2016! Although we didn't win, it was fantastic to be nominated, since playing live is so important to us, and meeting every audience is so special..... Thank you, all the voters!
You can watch the gala here - our performance is at 44:30:
And, in January we played the Folk at Heart festival in Örebro and were super happy to be chosen one of three 2016 ambassadors for the festival! Thank you so much, Folk at Heart!
Thank you so much for visiting, and take care!
John & Sofie xx
