In Their Words: “When the epic Swedish folk rock band Hoven Droven came to the Nordic Roots festival in Minneapolis in 2005, I joined them on stage for a couple of tunes, and ‘Kom Hem (Come Home)’ was one of them. The tune’s built-in melancholy made me think that ‘Come Home’ might be a plea to a lover who left, and that was the emotional direction I eventually took with it for my guitar arrangement. It turned out that wasn’t the complete story (apparently there were also dirty dishes piling up in the sink while this lover was gone). But the tune’s loneliness is what really spoke to me, especially played more slowly in this very low guitar tuning.” — Bruce Molsky
