On June 16, Jan Oskar Löfgren is releasing the song “Brittsommar.” It’s a song about old age and the time in life that Jan himself describes as the time for “brittsommar” (late summer). Jan wrote the song as one of four members of the quartet King Edwards, and it’s one of the songs on the CD with the same name. As usual with Jan’s music, his songs are always dedicated to different people he has met in his life. “Brittsommar” is dedicated to Jan’s good friend Britt, whose husband also has a song dedicated to him on the CD. The song belongs to the genre of “hambopolska,” a genre rooted in folk music and a type of three-beat polska. It is just one of the many music genres we have had the pleasure to enjoy through Jan’s diverse musical repertoire.
