Fast Five: Rosa Rebecka



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I come from a musical family so I’ve been making music all my life, but I only really started writing songs when I was about five.

I’ve never really wanted to do anything else. I did briefly flirt with the idea of sailing the seven seas as a ship’s poet, but then I found out there weren’t very many job opportunities.

How would you describe your music?

The best description I’ve come up with for my songs is “Gentle and Intense.” People have said lots of nice things about my music over the years, but that’s what’s stuck with me the most.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

Earlier this year I inherited my great grandmother’s guitar and brought it over to the UK from Sweden. It’s a very special instrument and still sounds fantastic at over a hundred years old; I used it to record the title track on my latest album Songs For Mrs Beautiful. I’ll be playing a special concert with it in Exeter in November to welcome it to the country, but before then it needs to go to the workshop for a little TLC.

Over the Summer I’m touring with The Wren Band playing traditional English folk and doing my own shows too, playing material from the album as well as newer (and older) stuff. Then at some point I’ve got to knuckle down and get the next album recorded…

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

If it could be anybody at all it would have to be my great grandmother, Katrina Fhager (literally Mrs Beautiful in Swedish). I have her guitar, but I have no idea what she played on it and there’s nobody still alive who’s old enough to remember. She probably sang religious music as she came from a very devout community, but then there are some great spirituals!

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Blue by Joni Mitchell. It’s a fantastic album, full of raw emotion. She really opened my mind up to the possibilities of combining lyrics and melody. It sounds so fresh and new even now, forty years later.
