Premo, originally from the UP, is known for her rhythmically deep and rapt delivery of roots music, spanning the crossover of old-time and bluesy American traditions to darker Scandinavian sounds. She was first introduced to folk music and traditional dance by her parents Bette & Dean Premo and later mentored by Joel Mabus (clawhammer banjo, Michigan), Arto Järvelä (fiddle, Finland), and Ånon Egeland (fiddle, Norway). Working with Nordic master musicians as an adult both anchored and honed artistic expression that was cultivated as she was raised in the folk culture of the Upper Midwest.

Premo will lead a group hands-on instrumental workshop, performing and teaching traditional Finnish instrumental tunes and sharing information about their roots. Through working up these melodies, students can learn more about traditional dance, regional rhythms, and spark interest in further study. All instruments are welcome. Premo will lead the workshop on fiddle. Instruction will be done in the folk style, learning by ear, and no music-reading skills necessary.

The FAFS requires that all instructors and participants be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All attendees must wear a mask at all times during FAFS events. If you feel sick before a class or concert, please stay at home and contact us to arrange a refund.
