Garmarna is a Swedish folk-rock band.
Formed in 1990 in Sundsvall, Sweden, as a trio featuring Gotte Ringqvist, Stefan Brisland-Ferner, and Rickard Westman, Garmarna was inspired by Olov Johansson's musical score for a production of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Their debut album, Vittrad ("Withered"), released in April 1994, was nominated for a Swedish Grammy.
The original trio was soon augmented by percussionist Jens Höglin and singer Emma Härdelin. Read more on Last.fm
