Nyckelharpa is a Swedish traditional instrument.
I have played in different occasions such as a reception at an ambassador's residence in Stockholm and to the Japanese Princess Takamado when she visited Sweden in June 2013. I am also a member of a group called "Järfälla Spelmän".
I have played three times for an award, "Zornmärket". There are four steps which are diploma, bronze, diploma after bronze and silver. A musician becomes a certified folk musician (Riksspelman) by receiving the silver award. I received the diploma in 2007, bronze in 2008 and diploma after bronze in 2013. There is only one step left before I become "Riksspelman".
