2012 - Barbershop Quartet Champions

Lead: Rasmus Krigström. Tenor: Jacob Stenberg . Baritone: Emanuel Roll. Bass: Martin Wahlgren.

Together, four youngsters from Stockholm, Sweden form the quartet known as the Ringmasters. Rasmus Krigstrom, Emanuel Roll, Martin Wahlgren and Jakob Stenberg came together as a group during high school and have over the past few years gained momentum. Today they are one of the most promising young barbershop quartets in the world. Among many merits you'll find a gold medal from the CBQC in Nashville 2008 and a fourth place bronze from the world championship in barberhshop the summer of 2009 in Anaheim.

But do not let the rather formal face of barbershop fool you. These guys know how to get around. The group takes on many different styles apart from barbershop, such as jazz, pop and rock. Ringmasters perform on events and parties and they are available for anyone who wants to book them. And if you're lucky, you might just find them singing in a bar somewhere around Stockholm.

Ringmasters : Live    onsale

The Swedish Barbershop quartet Ringmasters was founded in the fall of 2006, and they immediately were named "the young talents" in Barbershop circles. In the summer of 2008 they won their first International Gold in the Bank of America Collegiate Quartet Contest. And in 2009 they surprised the world at the Anaheim BHS Internationals, tying State Line Grocery for 4th Place. That marked the first time that a non-US group had placed in the top 10! "Live" is a limited edition, live recording of 8 songs at the Swedish venue Nybrokajen 11. Don't be too surprised to hear beautiful women's voices join Ringmasters (what a great Barbershop name!) on "Live," they are joined by Swedish Folk a cappella quartet Kraja on two cuts, "Come In and Stay Awhile" and "Limu, Limu, Lima." The other six tunes are Simon & Garfunkel's "Baby Driver," "Lazybones," Lennon/McCartney's "Can't Buy Me Love" and "Blackbird," "Blue Skies" and "Yes Sir, That's My Baby." Ringmasters have a fresh, powerful sound that obviously delights their live audience in addition to us. The Swedes are coming, and you really should hear them!

Songlist: Baby Driver, Come In And Stay A While, Lazybones, Can't Buy Me Love, Limu, Limu Lima, Blue Skies, Blackbird, Yes Sir, That's My Baby
