Concert & Musicians Workshop
Lisa Lynne & Aryeh Frankfurter perform with two Celtic harps, the rare Swedish Nyckelharpa, Ukrainian Bandura, Cittern and more. The audience will hear Traditional instrumental music from Sweden and Ireland as well as heartwarming original compositions. They will present an enchanting blend of music and tales from their adventures as modern-day troubadours.
Workshop - Swedish Tunes for All Instruments (4 pm to 6 pm)
In the workshop you will learn some Swedish "gems" demonstrated on the Nyckelharpa; But any instrument will benefit from this as we will discuss some basic rhythms, ornaments, and phrasing that makes a tune sound "Swedish.” We will learn the music in the tradition first, which will be by ear, phrase by phrase slowly. After we have the tune down together I will distribute the music for those who want to read. For some tunes, I will share seconds (the second harmony parts) and chords for fretted instrument players. We will learn with some really cool, relatively easy, popularly played tunes. As well as some more unique polskas. An extra Nyckelharpa will be on hand for you to try. This is recommended for an intermediate skill level on the instrument of your choice. Beginners are welcome to observe and record the class. For more info on workshop email - [email protected]
