The trio “Vindonia” from Skane Province, Sweden has been booked for Midsummer 2017 – Friday, June 23. Two of the three performers have performed at Midsummer before. Sue Syverson grew up in Sioux Falls and graduated from a Sioux Falls high school in the 1970’s. She and her daughter Lise Enochsson performed at Midsummer in 2005.

Here is the description they provided:
Scanian folk songs, Celtic harp and Jämtlandish fiddle: Vindonia sprung out of pure joy of making music, and a preference for songs of desire and despair, playful tunes and melodies to lift body and mind. Their music brings us on new pathways to a landscape rich with contrast an nuance. Vindonia plays Nordic traditional tunes in a personal style, featuring Lise Enochsson, Scanian folk singing; Karin Blom, Jämtland fiddling, and Susan Syverson on the Celtic harp. Lise sings with inescapable presence; a voice clear as a starry night and forcing pensive thoughts.
The forest is Karin’s element: Expanse of spruce forest is mirrored in vibrant polskor; the patterns of veritable nature reflected in ornaments on the fiddle.
Susan and her harps are equally at home in fine halls as at barn dances. With her wide and solid experience, she colours tunes with brilliance and resolve.
