Friday, March 5, 2021, is the next of our Swedish Fiddle Sessions on Zoom.
Our repertoire list is continuing to grow! Please give me suggestions as to what
tunes you would like added. Remember that the intention is to have tunes that are
already fairly well-known in areas of Sweden or among regional groups of
Swedish-American players. Also, with a few exceptions, I try not to have any recently
I am posting a "suggested playlist" for each session on Friday. I like playing tunes
that participants request from the main list, but I choose some myself in case a
request is not made at that moment. Requested tunes always take precedence.
Still 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 basic session is an hour in length, perhaps a little longer if there is interest. 45
minutes will be spent playing tunes from the common repertoire as listed below. The
next 15 minutes will be for teaching a new tune. Then, for those who are interested,
there will be another tune taught, this one more complex than the first. Then a little
time for chatting among ourselves before closing gives us a chance to get to know
Fun and good music is the aim!
