We've spent several days at Tyngsjö, located nere the border of Värmland. There is a small lodge of Johan and his cousins. The weather was not good, so we've painted a little bit to spend time.

Musik vid Siljan (Bingsjö Stämman)

We've been Bingsjö Stämman, one of the most nationwide known music assemblys in Sweden. Bingsjö itself is a very small village but most people feel comfortable when they are in this village. This assembly is a really big event for both folkmusic musicians and dancers.

Satoko Kozuki, who've visited us from Stockholm, is playing her "nyckelhalpa".
