World Wednesday: Nordic traditions


Today’s From the Library cel­e­brates nordic 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 Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s pro­gram was pro­duced by Otenth Pader­born.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Cale­don Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Sec­ond Life ref­er­ence libraries in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Cale­don Library Web site, or one of their loca­tions in-world.
