Profile
The original line-up of Hoven Droven was formed at Birka Folk High School, Östersund in 1989. The band spent their first year indulging in various acoustic experiments based on Swedish folk music, with no other thought in mind than to have fun and learn from each other. During the early 90s, the band evolved into a powerhouse fusing traditional folk music with aggressive punkish rock.
