October 9th: Scandinavia Comes to Old Town

Join us for the opening of the Classical Tuesdays 2012-13 season!

Hale Bill & the Bopps, a group that hales from and bops around the Puget
Sound region, plays traditional Scandinavian dance music and includes some original tunes in every set. Anticipate a variety of sounds coming from fiddles (including the Norwegian hardingfele and the Swedish nyckelharpa), keyboards and voices. All good fun!

Bygdedeal is a dance group from Seattle (bygdedanser refers to village dances dating back centuries). All members have earned dance medals from Svenska Ungdomsringen for Bygdekultur for their mastery of Swedish folk dancing. When not traveling in Norway and Sweden, they perform at Northwest Folklife and other events and teach for Skandia Folkdance Society in Seattle. The dancers wear traditional Swedish and Norwegian folk costumes, which add color and beauty to their lively performances. Be prepared to be entertained!

Tuesday, Oct. 9th, 2012, at 7 pm.
