Anki Lindqvist (1945 - 2007)




Finnish folksinger Anki Lindqvist (27 October 1945 - 15 November 2007) has died in Muonio after a severe illness. Born as Agneta Elisabeth Lindqvist, Anki released her first single, 'Neiti yksinäinen' ("Miss Lonely"), with the surf-guitar band The Savages in 1962.

She came into prominence along the Finnish folk music boom of the mid-60s, when she recorded as a trio with Bosse and Robert Österberg among all some Finnish translations of Johnny Cash and The Kinks, but also her own solo songs, 'Paha tyttö' ("Bad girl") perhaps the best known of them. Furthermore, the Pomus.net entry lists 'Ne kesäyöt' (Marianne Faithfull's 'Summer Nights'), 'Sunny', 'Jos nyt menet pois' (Jacques Brel's 'Ne me quitte pas'; known also as English version 'If You Go Away', recorded at least by Nina Simone and Scott Walker) and 'Elät yhä muistoissain' ('Dream A Little Dream of Me' by The Mamas and Papas) as some of the most successful Anki songs of the period 1965-69.

Both in 1966 and 1967 Iskelmä magazine voted Anki Lindqvist as the most popular female singer in Finland. During the late 60s Anki also toured the country as a member of "Danny-Shows", the summer entourages of Ilkka "Danny" Lipsanen, and in 1969 she appeared in Finnish version of Hair. In the 1970s Anki was a member of the band Cumulus, alongside with Heikki "Hector" Harma, Cay Karlsson, Sakari Lehtinen and Petri Hohenthal. Anki Lindqvist also worked as a producer and director for the entertainment department of Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE's Swedish language TV.
