Lasse Dahlquist
Birth: Sep. 14, 1910
Death: Oct. 14, 1979

Singer, Composer and Actor. When returning home to Sweden after some years at sea, he started as a singer for Columbia Records in 1931. His major breakthrough was in 1938 with "Jolly Bob från Aberdeen". He wrote hundreds of songs, most of them coloured by his native upgrowing at the Swedish westcoast, and was often called "Västkustens vissångare" ("The singer of the westcoast"). He made over 500 recordings and among his most popular songs are "De ä dans på Brännö brygga" and "Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy". He also wrote music for films, and two of his most recorded songs are "Lite grann från ovan" and "Kalle på spången". He was acting in several Swedish films during the 1930s and 1940s. (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
