Härjedalspipan is not a band in the strict sense of the word, but four musicians who have worked together on breathing life into whistle music from Härjedalen.
Ale Möller (flute) comes from Skåne and is one of Sweden's most versatile folk musicians, and has had a lot of experience with folk wind instruments. Together with Mats Berglund, he has been part of the project "Musik i Härjedalens skogar - förr och nu" (Music in the forests of Härjedalen - then and now), and one of the results of their work together is the album "Härjedalspipan". Ale has researched the playing technique, working with surviving instruments, archive tapes, and instrument builders.
Mats Berglund (fiddle) is a well-known musician from Värmland, who has worked on the "härjedalspipa" project. Mats has, with the aid of archives and people from Härjedalen, found the tunes which come from Olof Jönsson. On the album, he plays on Olof Jönsson's whistle tunes.
Greger Brändström (fiddle) is born and raised in Sveg in Härjedalen. He has devoted a lot of time to absorbing the playing tradition of Härjedalen, partly through archives, but mostly by meeting older musicians. He has studied at the traditional music academy in Rauland, Norway.
Lasse Sörlin (fiddle) comes from Frösön in Jämtland, and plays both the fiddle and other instruments. He mostly plays tunes from western Jämtland, but as a friend of Greger's he has also learnt the music of Härjedalen.
