Friday, January 22, 2021, is the second of our Swedish Fiddle Sessions on Zoom.
Our first session was fun. We got in 9 tunes from the list, plus the one that was
taught (Kyrkmarsch från Östervåla). Several tunes were at the request of
participants, and one NOT from the list was suggested (Gånglåt från Äppelbo), so that
one has been added, and we will play it for sure in this session. Most participants
were local to Northern California, but we had some from other states and time zones!
Now for the foreseeable future, the sessions will be every Friday at 6:00 p.m
Pacific Time (9 p.m. for east coasters).
I will keep current information on the sessions on this page, including the codes
and passwords for joining.
The sessions are an hour in length, perhaps a little longer if there is interest. There
is no charge for taking part. Muting everyone else because of the time lag, (I wish
everyone could play together!), I will play tunes from the common repertoire as
presented in the sheet music list below for 45 minutes. Then I'll spend 15 minutes
presenting a new tune. It may not be new to everyone, but it will be a good
Comments, questions, and suggestions will be eagerly accepted between tunes.
Fun and good music is the aim!
