Scandinavian folk music concert in Broadview Sunday afternoon

March 9th, 2013 · No Comments

Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag will perform a concert of Scandinavian folk music at 3 p.m. Sunday at Luther Memorial Lutheran Church, 13047 Greenwood Ave. N. The accomplished musicians are ages 7 to 16.

A Nordic showcase, the concert also features the musical group Sprida Ut, and Norwegian hardanger fiddlers, Peter Michaelsen and Anika Anderson.

The concert benefits the group’s tour of Sweden this summer and helps bring the dream of studying with master musicians to life. The trip is an unparalleled opportunity for the kids to connect and study with renowned Swedish fiddlers and to ensure that centuries-old folk traditions continue to thrive. What a great way to pay tribute to the many Swedish immigrants who made this area their home!

Tickets are available at the door, with a suggested donation of $15 (or $30 for families).
