Nordic Jam at Nisswa-Stamman

Northfield's Nordic Jam contingent at Nisswa-StammanMy wife and I were two of a dozen members of Northfield's Nordic Jam who traveled to northern Minnesota last weekend to perform at the Nisswa-Stämman Scandinavian folk music festival.

This was Nordic Jam's third appearance at the event, and we stayed true to our inclusive nature by welcoming into our fold a fiddler from Chicago whose group didn't make the trip.

Pictured above are, from left: Glenn Lee, Mary Klockeman, Virginia Windschitl, Jon Bjork, Amy Boxrud, Ruth Sylte, Mark Heiman, Ruth Anne Rasmussen, Teresa Tillson, Doug Bratland, Paul Niemisto (that guy is EVERYWHERE!) and John Hanson. Click the image to view a gallery of photos from the festival.

Nordic Jam meets every Monday evening at the Contented Cow to play music from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden and their American immigrant communities. Participants and listeners at all ages and levels of experience are always welcome.
