In Their Words: “I was visiting my parents’ house, where I grew up, over Christmas and they had been looking at old archive photos from the village. It was photos of people, houses, and forests. There was one specified photo of Rallpersgubben that caught my attention when he was working in the forest with some friends. It was such a nice document on that time and life in the village, so I got really inspired and wrote this tune.” — Lena Jonsson
