Scandinavian dance and CD release party!
Nov 7, 2014 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm$15
Skolkis, four extraordinary musicians, will pull out all the stops and release their second Nordic folk music CD, “G.F.B!” (Go for Broke). The evening, sponsored by Skandia Folkdance Society, features unbeatable dance music, but if you prefer just to listen, come soak up the great music.
Fiddlers Emma Anderson, Martha Levenson, Vicki Watt Warshaw, and guitarist EJ Landsman will take listeners on a rollicking musical tour of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. They’ll play original compositions from the new CD, plus selections written by renowned Scandinavian artists. The result is music that lightens the heart and step, lifts the spirit, and moves an audience to clamor for more. Here’s a link to Skolkis playing a few tunes from their CD: www.soundcloud.com/skolkis
The group’s name, in Swedish, is slang for “playing hooky,” and it’s a good fit for the group’s playful stage presence. Skolkis members are featured performers at the NW Folklife Festival, and they are much sought-after dance musicians. Don’t miss this delightful group!
