Description

The SCC gladly welcomes back Oskar Stenmark and his own trio! They will perform a program called "In My Grandmother's Footsteps." In Oskar's words:

”In Gärdebyn, Dalecarlia, you will find an important and ancient music tradition. The small Swedish village has been a cultural hub for over two hundred years. Oskar Stenmark, a flugelhorn player, is the tenth generation in his family to pass on this tradition, much thanks to his (paternal) grandmother Elsie Börjes who grew up in Gärdebyn. Elsie went on a U.S. tour with a group of fiddlers in 1956, when she was only 17 years old. 62 years later Oskar revives the music that has taken him to Minneapolis, Chicago, Washington D.C., Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles New York. This is the first time the trio performs in Boston as part of a tour in CT and MA, with special guest and Boston local Bruno Råberg on bass. Polskas, waltzes and folk songs are mixed with improvisation, a contemporary expression and sounds from New York.”
