This week marks the start of Jul market season, beginning with Bosjökloster (Cloister by the lake) in the town of Höör.
Carole, Beata and I arrived in time for the musical prelude and were surprised to find ourselves enjoying much more than just a few holiday songs. The concert was based on original (some never published) art work and books by Elsa Beskow, set to music by The Nordic-light Duo, Elsa’s great-grandson, Daniel Beskow, a concert pianist, with vocals by Josefine Andersson. The concert and storytelling alone would’ve made a fun day out but we were only just getting started!
It reminded me of reading Elsa Beskow books to my little girls!
