Events in Scandinavia

Where to look…

It’s hard for us to keep track of everything going on in Sweden. So here is a great site to bookmark for planning purposes. (It’s also just pretty to look at, too!) Uppsalafolk.com has a year-round listing of events in Uppland, aka central nyckelharpa territory.
