Christian Kjellvander is gifted with a kind of fearlessness and weight you only get from grinding, grinding, grinding your skills on the road, in rehearsal rooms and in studios. For many years, he has been one of Sweden’s foremost custodians of the Americana and singer-songwriter tradition, both as a solo artist and within previous constellations.

In recent years, Kjellvander has moved towards a more liberated and darker rock, which is based less on conventional song structures and rather on explorations on different emotional landscapes. After a three-decade-long career, Kjellvander is now mentioned alongside masters such as Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave. When he released the album Doom Country together with Tonbruket in early 2020, it made the magazine Nöjesguiden call it "a true masterpiece". The same year, he also released his eighth solo album, About love and loving again, which was well received by the critics.

Kjellvander's music has been described as downright spellbinding with a unique tone and we look forward to experiencing the magic that Christian Kjellvander brings with him when he takes to the stage at The Nordic Watercolour Museum in November 2022!

Christian Kjellvander – Faux Guernica (2018)


The concept behind "Grund" is produced by Tjörn Municipality and The Nordic Watercolour Museum. The idea is to offer a broad spectrum of music by exciting artists in an intimate setting at a great price. We believe in exciting encounters between the musician, audience and natural surroundings, where flashy stage shows are not allowed to get in the way of the music. And we believe that is an excellent ground on which to stand. / Previous artists on our stage: Kristofer Åström, Maja Francis, Franska Trion, Mattias Alkberg, Sophie Zelmani, José Gonzáles, El Perro Del Mar, Mikael Wiehe, Vasas Flora & Fauna, Jens Lekman, Joel Alme, Frida Hyvönen, Anna Järvinen, Marit Bergman, Hanna Järver, Edda Magnasson and Niki & the Dove
