Leif Ottosson – a young accordionist on the Swedish folk music scene who is said to be the first to have transferred the traditional fiddler’s style of playing to his instrument. He challenges the conventional way of using the accordion and is constantly searching for new expressions and sounds from his instrument.

His great artistic breadth and skill as a composer and arranger has earned him several well-renowned awards including the Hagström Scholarship and the Andrew Walter Scholarship for Accordionists. Leif has a masters degree in Swedish folk music from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
