Swedish fiddlers to perform at BARC on Nov. 5
A group of young fiddlers from the Dalarna region of Sweden will perform a free concert Sunday, Nov. 5, at 4 p.m., in the BARC Auditorium in Windom.
A freewill offering will be taken for the group to help with travel expenses.
The group, Vikarbyns Lilla Spelmanslag, is directed by Margaretha Mattsson, who has been bringing groups of young fiddlers from Sweden each of the past 12 summers. However, in 2017, the group decided to visit Minnesota in the fall. Youth participate in cultural exchange through music and giving concerts.
Not only is this their first fall trip, but this is the first time a group has visited Southwest Minnesota.
