Let's Visit Nisswa: The Nisswa Stamman


This summer will be the 20th anniversay of a two-day Scandinavian cultural experience called the Nisswa Stamman.  Paul Wilson and his wife Mary Abendroth brought the idea home from a vacation to Sweden in the 1990s.   The idea quickly gained momentum when they found an ideal location and local support for the event.  Two decades later, it's still going strong.  In this segment of Let's Visit, Paul discusses the festival's beginnings, what happens at the festival and how he got into playing Scandinavian folk music. The 2019 Nisswa Stamman will happen June 7th & 8th in Nisswa, MN.
