The Scandinavian Song Tradition
The Scandinavian Song Tradition features Swedish singer-songwriter Joel Karlsson, who originally hales from Wilhelmina in northern Sweden. Today, Karlsson teaches guitar in Akersberga and lives on an island in Stockholm archipelago. During his current U.S. tour, Karlsson “wants to contribute to the interest in Swedish culture and thus create closer links between the Swedish-American unions both in Sweden and the U.S.” He believes that “the Scandinavian song tradition is something very unique–a treasure that should be preserved and kept alive for coming generations.” 12:05 p.m. Free.
