Oktoberstämman 2017

oktober_2017_26 (147K)

Well it´s time for the traditional Oktoberstämman. Hundreds of players in the UKK-s forth floor.
The hole building filled up with fiddlers from all directions in Sweden, and some from other countries.
Playing from the middle of day until midnight. You never know where the best play is.
It could be in a narrow corridor, with few players or in a crowd with many fiddlers.
Lets go inside and enjoy.

Mandolinplayers are not so common in this kind of meetings. Thats a shame. The sound is
great with nyckelharpa, and fiddle.

Listen to westmannafolk. A new experience. Not like other traditional folkteam-bands.
Electric bass, steelguitar, and keyboard, with intro reminds me of shetland folk festival.
Like it very much!
