Flottarna kommer

The show Flottarna kommer! (“the log rafters are coming”) is based on stories about log rafting along the rivers Vindelälven and Umeälven. The stories were collected in the autumn of 2013, during five storytelling cafes organized in Sorsele, Lycksele, Vindeln, Vännäs and Umeå.

In Swedish.

Narrator is Lena Stina Forssell, Tegsnäset.

A group of fiddlers from each municipality will play during the show and each group has composed a song that will be rehearsed and performed in group. As the performance travel along Vindelälven and out into Umeälven towards Umeå, the fiddlers join in. To add some extra spark, local folk dance groups will participate in or in connection with the performance.

Fiddlers involved are: Sorsele spelmanslag (fiddlers), Lycksele spelamanslag, Mandelpären from Vindeln, Umebygdens spelamansgille, Umeå spelamanslag.
