Scanian Folk Flute Workshop 23-28 June

Ralsgård & Tullberg welcome you to Skåne (Sk-OH-na) for several days of folk music played on the flute. Our flute course kicks off immediately after Swedish Midsummer and is suited to players of both keyed/unkeyed simple-system wooden flutes and Boehm-system silver flutes. We will be focusing on Swedish folk music and Nordic flute traditions. We will also work with melodies, articulation, ensemble playing and arranging. The course will be held in western Skåne. For long-distance students who want to experience more of Skåne, we recommend a visit to the charming island of Ven, in the body of water between Sweden and Denmark. There you can experience the music and dance of traditional Midsummer celebrations, as well as a spelmansstämma (a festival for folk musicians). Just after the flute course ends, the big festivals and gatherings around Sweden get
started. Many of these events are in close proximity to the venue of the flute course and those that take place in Delsbo, Bingsjö and Boda and at Siljan, are some of the year’s most popular musical highlights. After attending our course, you have the opportunity to experience several of the finest and most important folk music events in Sweden.
The exact location of our course is not yet confirmed, but if you wish to book flight tickets, the closest and most suitable airports to arrive at are Kastrup (Copenhagen Airport), Sturup (Malmö Airport) or Ängelholm Airport.
