Today’s From the Library celebrates Scandinavian musical traditions. From the Finnish harp (and stunning vocals) to the nyckelharpa and fiddle of Sweden to the harp and fiddle of viking-influenced Scotland and Ireland, we have a sampler of a wide range of musical styles. Many of the tracks you will hear are dance tunes: march, waltz, polska, hambo, schottis, and more.

From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now in-world at http://music.radioriel.org, or click one of the buttons below. Today’s program is presented by Otenth Paderborn.
