Scott and Johanna Hongell-Darsee

Our inaugural Music Literacy Series is open to adults and children alike. The ancient art of the ballad is presented and performed by Scott and Johanna Hongell-Darsee, a musical duo specializing in historically informed performance of early and traditional Scandinavian/Celtic ballads and tales. Their wanderings have led them from Finland and Iowa, respectively, through Europe, Scandinavia, India, and the U.S. On the way they have picked up tales and songs that they perform together with the stories behind them, in particular exploring the links between Scandinavian, Celtic, North American, and other story singing traditions. Their performances have been described as magical, inspiring, haunting, mesmerizing.
