VIOLIN A MANO
born in the summer of 1953 in Boda Kyrkby in Dalarna. I have always been interested in working with his hands. Started early to work in my grandfather’s carpentry workshop where we jointly made furniture items. Dala cabinets, tables, beds. My grandfather also built instruments including violin, mandolin and guitar in the 1920’s. I grew up with a lot of folk around me and started to play the violin in 1972, with Röjås Erik as my teacher. Röjås Erik was also a violin maker and this began my interest in building musical instruments. I have worked for many years in adult education and as an organizer of concerts. 1999 I studied folk music on the violin at the College of Malung, “Jonny course”.
