Ida Meidell Blylod is a Swedish baroque and folk violinist who is passionately interested in the diversity of European violin traditions. Ida’s delicate playing reveals her true ability to make every performance unique, whether she’s playing in a gloomy concert hall, on a lively dance floor, or in a crowded bar. Ida has toured European folk and baroque venues for many years, and is also sought-after as a mentor in international courses in various styles of folk music. She came to Slovenia for the first time in 2011 for the Etnohisteria festival. Since then, she has been returning regularly due to collaborations with the Symbolic Orchestra and Godalkanje. In 2014, she was the soloist of the international project “European Symbolic Orchestra”, with which she also recorded the album “Terrafolk & the European Symbolic Orchestra – XXLive «. She performed with the Slovenian band Ida & the Other Bears. We can watch quite a few recordings of her live performances online, including the ones with Godalkanje. Ida is currently playing in a Swedish folk-baroque project with Johan Hedin, a renowned soloist at the nyckelharp. She regularly collaborates with several baroque orchestras in Sweden, Denmark and France. The concert will consist of Ida’s baroque-folk programme for violin solo, a performance by the Terrafolk duo and a joint performance of all three musicians. Together, they will take us on an energetic and colorful journey through the changing musical landscapes of Northern European folk music.
In case of bad weather, the concert will take place in “Sokolski dom” Škofja Loka.
