Magnus Zetterlund(b.1980) is one of Scandinavia’s foremost mandolinists with an innovative approach to traditional music and beyond. This insightful playing shines best throughout the work with his bands Nordic, Primus Motor and Malin Foxdal Trio. He is also in demand as an accompanist and in recent years has made albums, concerts and TV appearances with Esbjörn Hazelius, Tomas Ledin, Sofia Karlsson, Quilty, Rostam Mirlashari, Dan Viktor, The Tarantula Waltz and Kersti Ståbi. An important aspect of these collaborations is the fact that Magnus also plays guitars, cittern and harmonica.
In 2014 he received a gold record award for his work with Tomas Ledin´s Swedish Grammy award winning record ”Höga Kusten”.
As a performing musician Magnus has also worked with Riksteatern, Cirkus Cirkör, Västanå Teater, Clowns without borders and Gävle Folkteater.
In 2007 Magnus became the first Swedish mandolinist to graduate from higher education when he completed his studies at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. Today he teaches mandolin and guitar students at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
