Musician

Dan Berglund

Born:

Dan Berglund was born in May 1963 and grew up in a small village in Sweden called Pilgrimstad near Ostersund. His father played accordion in an amateur band and his elder brother played guitar. They introduced him at an early age to very different styles of music including Swedish folk music, pop and rock.

Dan took over the bass part, first of all playing the bass lines on his guitar, then later his father bought him an electric bass and Dan was immediately fascinated by playing it
