Music

As an active musician I play music mostly for dancing, but I also teach in shorter courses for Swedish folk music with focus on nyckelharpa.

Playing 19th century music at a steampunk event at the railway museum in Gävle 2014.

A lot of the traditional music is made for dancing, and my pupils often have to move and dance during workshops.

All teaching is done by ear, without sheet-music. Video- and sound-recoding devices allow the participants to take the material with them after the lesson.

My main instrument is silverbasharpa and a play many tunes after Björn Björn, Styrbjörn Bergelt, Erik Levin among others.

I also play three-row nyckelharpa and mainly tunes after Sigurd Sahlström.

On my four-row nyckelharpa i focus on fiddle-music, primarly from the island of Gotland, were I was born.
