Please join us for a wonderful evening of Swedish music with the fantastic Bridget Marsden! There will be a workshop from 6-7 followed by a concert from Bridget 7.30- 8.15. Whilst Bridget is herself a fiddle player, other instruments are warmly welcomed. The workshop will be taught by ear without the use of sheetmusic.
Bridget Marsden – Artist of the Year at the Swedish Folk & World Music Awards 2016 – is a violinist who walks her own path through a rich and varied musical landscape. An encounter with Swedish folk music made such a strong impression on her that she moved from England to Sweden, to study folk music at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, where she graduated with a masters degree in 2010. Today she works as a freelance musician, composer and teacher. Bridget is specialised in the Bingsjö fiddle tradition, and has been awarded the Päkkos Gustaf Scholarship. Her critically acclaimed debut solo album When I Listen To Bingsjö (Dimma Sweden) was released in 2015.
Ticket pricing is £15 for concert and workshop, or £10 for just one of the two. Tickets will be available on the night, but please let us know if you're coming by RSVP-ing at the top of this event so we have a rough idea of numbers.
