2018 Swedish Fiddle Workshops

The ASI Spelmanslag is once again sponsoring Sunday afternoon workshops in the month of October, and a Saturday workshop on October 6. This is a special opportunity for young players of stringed instruments, and the young-at-heart, to learn traditional Swedish tunes. The workshops will be led by members of the ASI Spelmanslag and some special guests from Sweden, including the Vikarbyns lilla spelmanslag from Dalarna on the final Sunday.

Folk music is best learned by ear, and this will be our approach. Learn a new tune each week! Please bring your own instrument, as they will not be provided. Younger players should have some proficiency on their instruments. Course material will be tailored to the skill level.

No age requirements – the aim is to share this rich musical tradition with a new generation at the American Swedish Institute.
