As par of the 13th annual Russian Guitar Festival, concerts will take place in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids and there will also be three lectures, free and open to the public.

This year's theme is Scandinavia, and we will have amazing guests from Sweden and Norway.  The charismatic singer Martin Bagge (Gothenburg, Sweden) will introduce to Iowans the art of Carl Bellman, the 18th-century Swedish troubadour renowned for his drinking songs. He will be accompanied bythe husband-and-wife band Laude Novella from the South of Sweden (Per Mattsson and Ute Goedicke). Per and Ute will also perform with us the unique repertoire from a Swedish manuscript that was found in Siberia. 

And of course, the usual Russian-Romani brilliance, and many, many classical seven-string players!
