Chris Dyer wants to punch the air when someone launches into a Scandinavian tune at a session… If you play Serpentina och Konfetti, Eklundapolskan nr 3, Johsefins Dopvals, Gärdebylåten or Äppelbo you’ve already dipped your toes in the Baltic! But this vibrant tradition of folk dance music with its haunting melodies and foot tapping energy has hidden depths waiting to be explored. Come along to Chris’ workshop to discover the baroque charms of polonaise and slängpolskas, gentle walking tunes, the lively lift of vals and schottis and the sailor’s Engelska dance. Tunes will be in D or G and Chris, who runs the London Scandi Session, will post the dots in advance on the group's Facebook page.
