Scandinavian 20th Anniversary


Way back in the 90’s, I had the pleasure to perform some wonderful Swedish and Finnish music with the immensely talented Petra Zilliacus.   Today marks the 20th anniversary of our Scandinavian Music Show at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis.

This was a very enjoyable collaboration which produced some nice music.  Click our promo photo to see a brochure from back in the day.
