Miriam Andersén is a Swedish singer and bearer of the honorary title of Riksspelman. She trained as a singer at the Schola Cantorum Basilienses in Switzerland, also studying medieval harp, medieval notation and performance practise. Since then she has toured the globe as a freelance musician.
An expert on Swedish traditional music and its medieval roots – especially the epic traditions of ballads and skaldic poetry – her repertoire encompasses a wide spectrum of genres from Gregorian chant to contemporary music. Together with Anna Rynefors she pilots the project Kvinnolåt (”Women’s Tune”), which is dedicated to shine a light into the role of women in music history.
