The Music of Sweden



Swedish folk music experienced a revival in the seventies. Today the Spelmansförbund (Sweden’s oldest folk music organization) puts together concerts, tours, and events, such as the “Folk Music Café” to keep the tradition alive. This beautiful album presents a cross section of polkas, engelskas, schottises, and other Swedish dances played on authentic traditional instruments, such as the nykkelharpa (a keyed fiddle), fiddles, accordions, and more. Twenty-five traditional Swedish favorites in all, for these we say “Skål!” Total Time: 54 minutes
