Traditional Music Enters the City

For one week, during 3-10 August 2014, Umeå will be filled with folk music and song. Riksspelmansstämma (a national get-together of folk instrumentalists), Zornmärkesuppspelningar (auditions to reach a nationally recognised standard in folk music) and Folkskandiaträff (a ‘Scandinavian’ folk meeting) with 120 young people from the Nordic countries all feature in the program me.

The week finishes with the customary Folkmusik- och visfest (Folk music and song festival) at Västerbotten Museum.

Organizer: Björksta folkdanslag and Västerbottens museum
