Welcome to Folk Flute Academy’s summer courses 2022! 

Two Courses: level 1 (August 10-12) and level 2 (August 12-14)

We will teach you tunes from Jämtland, Härjedalen, Medelpad. You will be playing a variety of flutes provided by Gunnar for the course. The flutes that you will be using are Härjedals– or Månmarkapipa in A and Offerdals– or Åspipa in G. During the course you will have the opportunity to order or buy flutes to discount prices. Two workshops with Jean Pierre Yvert, (Sälgeflöjt) and Stefan Ekedahl (Evertsbergspipa) on Friday.
