Midsummer Means Scandinavian Music Week is One Year Away!

As you may know every two years ARC focuses on a region or genre of music and pulls together hundreds or essays, performances, articles, blogs and recordings highlighting the culture and music of our chosen topic.  Last year it was Cuba, before that Brazil, India and the music of the greater Muslim world.  Well 2019 it will be the greater Nordic world as we explore the music of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. 

More info soon.  But today you should dance around a flower strewn pole (not pole dance), have some herring and a slug of akvavit.  And don’t forget to come by our Sizzlin’ Summer Record Sale and support the largest popular music library in the world.  The disc above is one of the many wonderful Folkways recordings available at our sale this year –  also many from Africa and fokie America at great prices.  It’s the longest day of the year so plenty of time to shop!
