On Saturday, February 16, fiddle players are encouraged to attend a two-and-a-half-hour workshop to learn new Swedish fiddle tunes in preparation for a Sunday performance with ASI’s Spelmanslag. This event is a great opportunity to get introduced to Swedish fiddle music and to participate in the tradition of a Spelmanslag.

Drop-in, free youth and adult workshops with an emphasis on learning new Swedish fiddle tunes. Participants should plan to bring their own instrument and have some familiarity learning music by ear. Youth and adult fiddlers will first work separately, then join to play together.
