FOLKMUSIC
The folk culture of Sweden is a
fascinating study.   Every
category is a blending affected
by the others.   To truly
understand the folk music, one
must be acquainted with the
environment in which it
developed.  

This tour will take a group of 5
travellers along with an
experienced guide to see music
and dance festivals, museums,
castles, country churches,
Viking grave mounds, and
wonderful sites where nature can
be enjoyed.  

There will be stays at hotels and
bed-&-breakfast homes.   Some
activities will be for the general
public, and some will be
arranged specifically for this tour.

The exact itinerary will be
determined according to the
specific interests of the
participants:

-Musicians will want extra time
meeting and playing with local
Swedish folk musicians.

-Artists will want to visit
displays of prominent Swedish
artwork, as well as spending
extra time enjoying folk art in its
place.

-The spiritually adventurous
might  want to spend the night
in a haunted castle, or visit sites
where witches were tried, or
where trolls were sighted in the
long past.
