Amy Hakanson was first introduced to Swedish folk music and the nyckelharpa in 2008, when Väsen performed at the Wintergrass Bluegrass Festival in Seattle. Her interest in Scandinavian music continued to grow for years until, in 2014, she was able to buy her first nyckelharpa. In addition to the nyckelharpa, Amy plays the fiddle, Hardingfele, banjo, guitar, and is trained in classical violin. She grew up immersed in American roots music, playing bluegrass fiddle with her family band.

Amy performs regularly with her Nordic fusion band Varelse in addition to playing solo for Scandinavian events, teaching workshops, writing and performing string arrangements for studio recordings, and gigging with local band in Portland.
