Lockdown Easing – What next?


It’s mid-May and we can’t believe how fast time is flying! Our lounge was moved into the dining room permanently exactly a year ago now! This gave us a permanent streaming studio in the lounge, since then we also have a second space which is streaming and a third teaching space in the spare room. So now that lockdown is easing – what does that mean for our tech-heavy house? In reality not much has changed as the restrictions have been eased. We’re still losing dates in the diary and we’re still doing the online streams. We can’t see this changing for at least the next few months. We will be putting our own livestream concert in the diary for next month – with all the online dances we’ve been very neglectful of our non-dance audience! We’ll rectify that very soon – watch this space. In the meantime….

Wednesday 19th May
Smörgåsballad – Songs and Tales of the Land of the Midnight Sun
a Hybrid event at Benslow Music
Concert starts at 8pm – it would be great to see you in person or online! We’ll set up a chat thread in FaceBook so you can reach us! If you’d like to play along you can grab the dots here!

Sunday 23rd May
Vicki has created a new nyckelharpa teaching website and we release a session video every fortnight. This Sunday is the fifth session and is Swedish tunes from Smörgåsballad. Because it’s on YouTube you can watch at the premier or any time afterwards – full details in the VMR (as Vicki likes to call it). The video is embedded below!

Tuesday 25th May
We’ve been working hard in the Zoom dance scene over the past 5 months and we have another dance on the 25th. We always publish the tune list so if you want to play along you can! We don’t always get the dance list very early, so the pad can go up very late, but if you get in touch we can make sure to email it!

Hope to see you at one of these!
Lots of Love
Vicki & Jonny
