Fika Sound Series: lydia & Andrea
What is a “Fika”? Fika is a social institution in Sweden; it means having a break, most often a coffee break, with one’s colleagues, friends, date or family. The word “fika” can serve as both a verb and a noun. Swedes, like most Scandinavians, consider coffee an important part of their culture.
Join us for this special concert presented as part of a series during the SCC’s weekly Kaffestugan (café). Enjoy Swedish pastries from Worcester’s Crown Bakery, waffles and open-faced sandwiches, and bring your brunch into the Nordic Hall for some musical accompaniment!
Scandinavian fiddle duo lydia ievins and Andrea Larson are eager to share the music they’ve brought home from a rewarding year of studying together in Sweden. They perform an energetic and engaging program of traditional music on fiddle, 5-string fiddle, nyckelharpa, and voice — including waltzes, schottises, polskas, and more.
