Karl Nyhlin (guitar)

Karl Nyhlin, who was born in Umeå in northern Sweden in 1974, studied lute and continuo playing in Stockholm and Malmö. He was subsequently awarded several major scholarships, including a Fulbright Award that gave him the opportunity to travel to America where he studied with Nigel North at IU Bloomington, Indiana, graduating there in 2002. Today Karl is known as one of the leading lute players of his generation. Based in Stockholm, he works regularly with distinguished early music ensembles across Europe and has performed in over thirty-five countries on six continents. He also frequently performs at opera houses, including Drottningholm Palace and the Royal Opera in Stockholm, as well as Oslo and Vienna. Karl can be heard on numerous recordings as an ensemble musician, and he has released two critically acclaimed solo CDs, 'The Jacobean Lutenists' and 'Works for Lute by David Kellner and Silvius Leopold Weiss'.
