           "Songs and Tales from the Land of the Midnight Sun"
 
    Taking inspiration from some of Sweden's greatest artists, Smörgåsballad is an evening of music and tales from the Swedish Summer. Banish winter blues by discovering the tradition of the Easter Witches, of what happens if you pick seven different wild flowers & put them under your pillow at Midsummer, or the real meaning of the midsummer majstång- participate in traditional drinking songs to celebrate the crayfish. Be introduced to the ancient cow horn, the willow flute, Swedish bagpipes and the ethereal nyckelharpa.

Enjoy a visual treat for the eyes and ears: be transported to the land of the midnight sun to enjoy "nordic noir tales", fall for their heroes and heroines, at all costs avoid the devil and never cross a nyckelharpa player...
 
with Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer
