This is the programme as we know it right now:
Billy Horne & Frank Berger: The long and winding road: Hurdy-gurdy maker and player. (A presentation of the Hurdy-gurdy as an instrument, from the perspectives of the luthier and the performer.)
Anna-Maria Toivonen: Let’s sing! Finnish music from ancient rune singing to newer folksongs (workshop)
Stefan Battige: Two medieval songs from a Baltic island (workshop)
Maria Ojantakanen: 10 Danish jocular folksongs from the collections of Evald Tang Kristensen (workshop for all levels and instruments)
Tim Rohrmann: Harp along Trollstigen. Weaving harp patterns and spooky sounds together (workshop)
Eeva-Kaisa Kohonen: Kantele workshop
Hiromi Hokkanen: Koto – a dragon with 1,400 years of history (Presentation of the Japanese Koto)
Helka Ermala: Elementary harp workshop
Then we thought of a workshop where the participants could each in turn volunteer to teach a tune from their countries. If you think you have a groovy tune you could teach, please let us know!
Tim Rohrmann also suggests “Round and round we go”, i.e. a joint “samspel” with various roundabouts, singing and combining different accompaniment patterns.
Plus jamming, allspel, public concert with a raffle, etc.
Changes and additions may occur!
