Twin Cities Nyckelharpalag

The Twin Cities Nyckelharpalag (Key Fiddle Group) was formed in 1998 for practice and performance of Swedish folk music. The group’s repertoire is drawn mostly from the folk repertoire of Uppland, Sweden, where the nyckelharpa tradition has its roots. Whether leading a procession, playing for dancing, performing in concert or providing focus for special events, the Twin Cities Nyckelharpalag enthusiastically carries on Swedish traditions through music. In performance, members of the group wear folk-dräkt, folk costumes modeled after clothing worn on special occasions in the 19th century.

The group is based in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota and affiliated with The American Swedish Institute.
