Washington Spelmanslåg (2011)

This film derived from my M.A. research with Göran Olsson, an ex-patriot Swedish fiddler currently living in Washington, DC. The documentary short introduces the tradition of the Washington Spelmanslåg, a ensemble devoted to performing the music of Jämtland, Göran’s home province. Göran discusses the music tradition in which he grew up, his teachers, and the music he has brought with him around the world.
