Foogy is a recording of traditional and new music from Scotland and Sweden by Catriona McKay and Olov Johansson.

It presents their way of making music, and explores the stunning sound of Scottish Harp and Swedish Nyckelharpa.

Catriona McKay and Olov Johansson met for the first time in Stockholm at a concert they shared with their bands, Väsen from Sweden and Shetland-based Fiddlers Bid. They both enjoyed the sound and music they made, which created a desire to further develop the collaboration.

The next opportunity to play was at the Celtic Connections concert Fiddlers' Bid International, and since then they have met regularly. After a tour of Sweden in the summer of 2008, they decided to make a recording.

Olov, the first Nyckelharpa World Champion, is a founder member of Sweden's top traditional group Väsen.

"The nyckelharpa and harp combination is fresh, charming and dynamic." (Rock'n'Reel)
