Monica Schön & Henrik “Hummel”

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

At Swedish folk festivals, you often find a “visstuga” (literally: “singing cabin”) where you’re welcome to share traditional songs and sing together with everyone. Bring that great song you learnt somewhere else long ago and simply join in!

At the first visstuga we will focus on traditional songs for children. Hopefully there will be some children to join in, if not, we’ll adapt it to fit the grown-ups!

The second visstuga will be explicitly for grown-ups…

Monica och Henrik

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.

Henrik “Hummel” Schön is one of the very few Swedes who play the hummel, the Swedish relative of the Norwegian langeleik and Icelandic langspil.

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