Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series features a concert of Scandinavian music on Sunday, May 11, at 2:30pm, in the Old Avoca Nebraska Schoolhouse. Greenblatt & Seay will be playing a variety of instruments, including fiddle, guitar, hammered dulcimer, recorders, pennywhistles, and the nyckelharpa. The nyckelharpa is the official keyed fiddle of Sweden, and has 16 strings.
Greenblatt & Seay have been playing and singing together since the night they met, decades ago. Their performance on May 11th will include the championship fiddling styles of Deborah Greenblatt, and the fancy whistle-playing of David Seay.
The concert will be downstairs, and followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with the performers. Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska on the 13C Spur, one mile south of Highway 34.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens, and $1 for children. Seating is limited. For more information, write to Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, PO Box 671, Avoca, NE 68037, or call 402-275-3221, or email them at
