Bjorn Ulvaeus Makes Rare Stage Appearance



A rare sight: Björn performing in public – Photo: Facebook VisFestivalen i Västervik
 
Visfestivalen in Västervik was the setting for an unexpected event yesterday when Björn Ulvaeus performed on stage for the first time in many years. He was in Västervik to pay tribute to his former Hootenanny Singers bandmate Hansi Schwarz who died in January this year.
In front of a cheering crowd, Björn grabbed his guitar and joined Tony Roth (also an original member of the Hootenanny Singers) and played a few songs.
Björn, Hansi Schwarz, Tony Roth and Johan Karlberg formed the Hootenanny Singers in 1961.
Calle Åstrand, son of Hansi Schwarz reflected afterwards on the increasingly rare sight of Björn performing in public and said “it was great that he and Tony Roth wanted to do it.”
