The folk music group Kollijox was formed in 1990.
Our base is Järfälla, a suburban municipality 25 km northwest of Stockholm.
So why and where do we play? The main reason is to play for dancers, to gammeldans and polska. But we also enjoy playing for sing along, in private parties and sometimes in concerts. All according to public and arranger. The instrumentation is accordion, fiddle, nyckelharpa, chord zither and contrabass.
Kollijox appears mostly in the Stockholm area. We have played at the biggest event in wintertime in Sweden, the Midwinter-stämma, on stage and for dancing. Our two cd:s will give you a view of our music, mainly Swedish and Norwegian.
