The ASI Spelmanslag is the fiddling group of the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We play the traditional folk music of Sweden, primarily from the region of Dalarna. Our repertoire includes traditional dance tunes such as waltzes, schottisches, and polskas.

New members are always welcome, from age 15 on up, at all skill levels of violin playing. (We also have a group for younger fiddlers.) We practice Thursday evenings, September through May, from 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. at the American Swedish Institute (map). All you need is a desire to learn and share this wonderful folk music with others. Come join us!
