Sign up for Nisswa-stämman music workshops

Nisswa-stämman instrumental, singing and dancing workshops are set for Friday, June 6.

If you have ever been interested in learning to play, sing or dance to Scandinavian folk music, this is a unique opportunity.

Each year, the Nisswa-stämman Scandinavian Folk Music Festival brings top level folk musicians from Scandinavia to Nisswa. They not only perform at the festival, but they also share their talents with students of all abilities on the day before the festival.

This year the workshops are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, June 6. There will be workshops in Norwegian, Swedish and Danish fiddling, both beginning and advanced; “ensemble workshops” where all instruments are welcome; Swedish toasting songs; Danish dancing; Swedish dancing; and the steamy Finnish tango.

These workshops all require advance registration and there is a fee. For more information, visit or contact Janet Hill at or 218-259-4090.
