HP -These are great - I love all the information!
I'm definitely going to learn at least one of them. I mostly learn by listening, but if you ever have any sheet music to share, I'm sure the other Forum members would love it.
I saw a video of a Halling for the first time about a month ago - it was amazing! Unbelievable athletes!
Thank you so much for sharing the videos.
Unfortunately I don't have any sheet music for it, since I was taught in person.
I noticed there's a lot of Finnish music in this thread, and I would like to note that Finland isn't scandinavian and finnish folk music isn't part of scandinavian folk music. Scandinavia is a dialect continuum, meaning it has to have similar language to be part of it. Norwegians, Swedes and Danes can talk with each other with their own mother tongue. A Finnish person can't speak with a Norwegian, Swede or Dane, nor the other way around. Same goes for Iceland, even though both Iceland and Finland is part of the Nordics.

HP - Thank you!
Fiddlerman fixed this! Now this thread is under the broader category, "Nordic".
I wanted to include Finland because we have an active member who is Finnish and there is a strong fiddle community/culture there.
I also realized (right after I started this thread) I'd forgotten to mention "Denmark" in the description of this thread, but it is definitely included under this heading.
I should also quote this from Wikipedia -
The broader definition is similar to what are locally called the Nordic countries, which also include the remote Norwegian islands of Svalbard and Jan Mayen and Greenland, a constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark."
I believe this is a very rich, important Genre of Fiddle/violin music that we should all explore!
- Emily THANK YOU, FIDDLERMAN!!!
