FolkMusEd2022 - Cancelled

We are so sorry to inform you that we will once again have to cancel the FolkMusEd Conference.

The main reason is the Pandemic situation, with different regulations around the world and the current regulation in Sweden and at KMH that is very strict until the middle of February 2022. 

We will not proceed with the Conference in a digital mode since we believe that a core value of this Conference has always been to honour the fruitful meeting in real life. 

Contribute to our "jubilee-publication"

Instead of the conference we invite you all to contribute to our "jubilee-publication"!

How to contribute

Here you will find all information regarding format, deadline, and process. Pdf, 608.5 kB, opens in new window.

From the beginning, this publication was mainly focused on highlighting that it's 45 years since folk music entranced KMH's doors and 25 years since the folk music department was initiated, both in a retrospective and a vision of the future. 

Now we have decided to enlarge our publication to include contributions from you. Based on the Conference's theme, "The Power of Oral Transmission within Higher Folk Music Education”, you are welcome to submit your contribution. 

Since this publication will be both web-based and printed, we welcome all kinds of contributions: videos, recordings, papers in artistic research, music pedagogy, ethnomusicology, musicology etc.

We will have a collegial peer review, and we hope that this publication will contribute to our field and could be of use for the future Higher Music Education in Folk Music.
