Encore: First Aid Kit joins host Stephen Kallao

It takes courage to dedicate an entire tribute album and live concert to a master of songwriting. And that’s exactly what the Swedish duo First Aid Kit did – After Leonard Cohen’s death, sisters Johana and Klara Soderberg teamed up with the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm to stage their love letter to Cohen, which now has been released as an album, called Who By Fire.
