We spent an intense and rewarding 2012–13 school year in Sweden, studying fiddle and nyckelharpa at the Eric Sahlström Institute. ESI is the epicenter of the nyckelharpa universe; it’s located in Tobo, a couple hours’ drive north of Stockholm. The town is tiny, but is nevertheless a familiar name both to nyckelharpa players around the world and to people who happen to live along the same train line. It is a wonderful place and you should go visit.

To hear what happens next, and how we’re bringing all this musical inspiration back to the folks at home, check out our lydia & Andrea duo site. There you can learn more about our performances, recordings, and teaching, including the popular Träd Weekend intensive workshop we have developed for Scandi-interested instrumental musicians.
