LYY – Swedish Folk Music that will soothe your mind, captivate your heart and rock your socks off!

The folk pop band LYY was founded in 2006. Since then they’ve created music where the lyric sounds and the melody brings stories to life. Lyy’s repertoire consists of traditional music and self-penned material. All arrangements are performed with energy, precision and a good sense of humor. In 2010 Lyy released their self titled debut album and their second album “två” was released in the early summer 2012. The third album ”tre” was released in June 2016.

Belgium, Germany, Canada, Scotland, Norway, Finland and Denmark are some of the countries Lyy has visited with great success, a part from concerts and workshops in Sweden. Please visit for more info, music, photos and videos!

“A Lyy concert is the complete entertainment experience. They play beautiful traditional music, poke fun at themselves, and make friends in the process.”
Tim O’Brien

”This is straight-forward Swedish folk music with some jazzy overtones, lightbodied, leaving the Nordic melancholy behind. The impression is of a midsummer’s night, full of vitality and joie de vivre.”
Tom Keller, FolkWorld

”Lyy reminds you what it is about Swedish folk music that is so appealing. The musicians are young, but have played together since 2006, so their sound is honed and tight. (…) If you’ve grown bored with Celtic music (and haven’t we all?), and are looking for something new, exciting and modern, take a chance on this one. You won’t be disappointed.”
Jim Lee, Driftwood Magazine

“Their music has a swinging flow and lift, taking a ‘Swedish sound’ to new levels. Lyy are a must see band”
Mats Melin, The Living Tradition Magazine

”The music is plesure-filled, captivating and energetically flowing, sometimes the structure of it is like rock music. But it is also at times naked, meditative and thoughtful with ethereal medieval tones.”
