Nordic Bees

The Nordic Bees play Old-Time Scandinavian music with only a hint of the traditional nordic angst.  We play traditional dance and folk tunes from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark: waltzes, schottisches, ceremonial marches, and we never met a polka we didn't like.   Renee plays the key-fiddle, also known as the “nyckelharpa,” and most commonly known as the, "What the heck is that thing you are playing?"   She is a complete romantic sucker for a waltz or a minor key schottische.  Renee won a mooing contest once.  Eric plays guitar and his back up on Scandinavian tunes sounds beautiful and old and just how it should. He is the rhythmic and stoic force that binds.  Eric rides his bike everywhere he can, and in all seasons
