Henrik “Hummel” Schön is one of the very few Swedes who play the hummel, the Swedish relative of the Norwegian langeleik and Icelandic langspil. He has demonstrated this rare instrument on multiple Nordic Harp Meetings.

Monica Schön knows lots of traditional folk songs and ballads and was singing some of them at late night sessions on previous Nordic Harp Meetings.

Together they gave a workshop in Swedish ballads and Faroese-style ballad dancing at the Nordic Harp Meeting 2015 in Turku, Finland.

This year (2018), they will share with us some Swedish folk songs:

  • Visstuga för barn med sånglekar (song workshop for children with singing games)
  • Visstuga för vuxna (song workshop for adults)
