Scandinavian Cyber-Posten

Welcome to the Scandinavian Cyber-Posten!

The Scandinavian Cyber-Posten is my blog for the band. Ever since I started reading The Machine's Pump on the Brave Combo website I've wanted my own blog. After all, I'm a creative and intelligent person and I have thoughts on a lot of things. Here's a place where you can read what I think about a variety of topics. I hope you enjoy what you read. If you have any feedback on what I've written, email me at

Lovely May

Hello readers! The month of May is in full swing. Last night we played for the Syttendemai Dance at Leif Erikson Lodge #1 in Seattle. It was a lot of fun. The crowd was very jovial and lively and it was a wonderful celebration of Norway's Independence.

Another joy of the month of May is the Maifest in Leavenworth. Maifest is basically a good excuse for Germans to drink beer and eat sausages (as if an excuse is needed). It's a good occasion for polka music, too, which is where we come in.

Best of all is the Northwest Folklife Festival at Seattle Center. Folklife is a four-day party where musicians get to take over the Seattle Center to play music. It's like Disneyland for musicians. I love it. It's an endless feast of every kind of music imaginable. I'm playing with a dance orchestra on Saturday night and then, of course, with the Smilin' Scandinavians on Sunday afternoon. In between I'll be listening to everything from bluegrass to Dixieland (and other non-banjo-related musics) and hanging out with all my musical friends I only see occasionally.

Yay May!
