The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc, an amazing trio of fiddlers from Norway, Sweden, and the Shetlands, will give a concert and workshops October 8th and 9th, co-sponsored by the Skandia Folkdance Society and the Seattle Folklore Society. The trio, featuring Olav Mjelva (Norway), Kevin Henderson (Shetlands), and Anders Hall (Sweden), is known for clever arrangements, using the fiddles to create bass lines and riffs, and leaving the listener wondering how three fiddles can generate such amazing sound. Each of these fine fiddlers is known as a leader within their respective traditions.

The concert takes place Saturday, October 8, in the Phinney Community Hall. Advance tickets ($16/$14 members, students,
seniors/ $8 Youth) are available at Brown Paper Tickets or at other SFS events. At the door, tickets are $18/$16/$8 (cash or check only).
Music workshops are scheduled for the following day, Sunday,
October 9, at the Cedar Valley Grange. All three fiddlers will
teach two sessions each during the day. Check for the full workshop schedule and fees.
