8pm: Olof Lövmo Trio
Olof Lövmo was born in 1980 in Kalmar, Sweden. He is a pianist, composer and teacher, the son of a church musician, thus raised with the hymn tradition. He has studied at the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg, and Conservatorio F. Morlacchi in Perugia, Italy. From 2007 he worked as a teacher in the program for music at Oskarshamn Folkhögskola while also working as a freelance pianist in theatres, with big bands and in other contexts.

In 2011 he formed a trio together with the canadian/croatian bass player Robin Draganic and the italian drummer Andrea Marcelli. The trio plays mainly Lövmos compositions but also swedish folksongs and hymns. The trio recorded the album “Wood Songs” which was released in 2014 on the Norwegian label Kirkelig Kulturverksted. The trio has toured in Sweden and Germany playing in jazz clubs, churches and schools.
