“First Aid Kit makes superb Cohen tribute” (Aftonbladet)
“So nice. And so strongly. I can hardly imagine a finer Leonard Cohen tribute than the one that First Aid Kit and their brilliant colleagues sets up on the Royal Dramatic Theatre’s Main Stage.” (Aftonbladet)
“More than just a concert” (…) “an obvious excellent evening” (DN)
“A magnificent tribute to the poet” (GAFFA)

Since we started with music 10 years ago, Leonard Cohen has been a constant source of inspiration. He was an outstanding songwriter. His language is unique. Each line, each word is meaningful. When he died in November, we became very concerned and we felt we really wanted to make a tribute concert to our idol, says First Aid Kit.

First Aid Kit consists of the sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg, who achieved great success both in Sweden and internationally with their music that has the roots of American folk and country. They have often been acclaimed for their interpretations of other artists’ songs, not least with their performances during the Polar Awards, where they touched both EmmyLou Harris and Patti Smith to tears.

Participate does, just like at the concerts in March, the guest artists Säkert!, Frida Hyvönen, Jesper Lindell, Loney Dear and Maja Francis.

From the Royal Dramatic Theatre participate’s, Nina Zanjani, who is also director, and Maia Hansson Bergqvist.
