The Swedish festival Way Out West have launched something called the “Way Out West Sessions”, where they record a session and interview with one of the acts from the festival. The first volume of the series is with the Swedish folk act First Aid Kit who perform their beautiful single “Emmylou” in Stockholm. The Söderberg sisters turn in an excellent performance and the video is beautifully shot.
Go ahead and watch the session below, and if you wanna skip the interview just jump to 3.44 in the video.
