Scandinavian Christmas / Ross Sutter


A Holiday Treat for All Ages

Enjoy a fun “Scandinavian Christmas” evening at the Edge! Ross Sutter's Scandinavian Christmas Show has been performed at the Guthrie, on Prairie Home Companion, in New York, and even in Norway.

Anything that well-traveled must have a lot to keep audiences coming! Indeed a “Scandinavian Christmas” is an evening of singing, music, and dancing for the whole family and is entertaining, enjoyable, and fun.

There are nine musicians and dancers including Sutter, who also plays guitar and button accordion. The concert will feature Cheryl Paschke on fiddle and nyckelharpa (ni-kel harp-ah: the Swedish-keyed fiddle), Marya Hart on piano and pump organ, Rachel Jensen & Kari Loing on Hardanger (har-dahng-er) fiddle, and dancers Carol Sersland and Bruce Bostrum. Adding more music and dance will be the Scandinavian duo Jänta o’ Jag made up of Char Bostrum on fiddle and Art Bjorngjeld on accordion and fiddle. Art and Char will join Carol and Bruce at times, and the stage will be filled with dancers dressed in colorful costumes circling and turning as the musicians play tunes for dancing.

Join us at the Edge for a family-friendly show and a chance to sing along with familiar Scandinavian Christmas songs!
