Ditte Andersson (Sweden)

Ditte Andersson is a musician with one foot in Swedish folk music and the other in a mix of genres, like Scots traditional music, rock and blues. She is an accomplished nyckelharpa player, fiddler, singer, composer and story teller. Her aim, as an artist and composer, is to create music in the borderland between folk and popular music, in an acoustic, small-sized format. In 1980, Ditte was awarded the title of "riksspelman" (i.e. awarded the Silver Zorn Badge). Ditte is also an experienced teacher on a free-lance basis, and works regularly at Eric Sahlström-institutet and the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. She obtained her degree from the same college (Master of Education in Music, main subject Sw. Folk Music, corresponding to 240 ECTS credits).

Nyckelharpa in Music Schools – The Beginning

Interview with Anders Liljefors by Ditte Andersson

Traditionally, the only music you could study at music schools of all sorts, from the very start up to college level, was classical music. In Sweden, this started to be officially questioned in the 70’s, with official reports and changes as a result. These official changes were the result of the work of many pioneers, people who acted up to their convictions, and, thus, made an impact on the system. In many cases this was possible because they were ”bi-lingual”, they knew classical and folk music equally well, which gave them leverage to bring about changes.

Anders Liljefors, who, together with his friend and colleague Mats Kuoppala, was among the first, if not the first, to bring nyckelharpa into the municipal music school around 1968 (Nyckelharpa in music schools).
