Johan Holland grew up in the tiny hamlet of Malungsfors, and started playing the violin when he was eight. He joined the Malung Spelmanslag when he was just 13, and has continued to play exclusively folk music. He spent a year at the Falun Conservatory of Music, immersing himself in the music of Dalarna and other lands, following a world music concentration. In the same year, he also won the coveted Pål Olle Scholarship. This year, Johan took the year long course at the Malungs Folkhögskola with renowned fiddler and pedagog, Jonny Soling, and led the Malung Lilla Spelmanslag.
Johan is a recipient of the Tällberg Foundation Scholarship, which enables his travel to the U.S. The Tällberg Foundation is a Swedish non-profit organisation that promotes free and open exchange of ideas and experiences. Established in 1981, the Foundation awards one scholarship per year to a young musician from Dalarna. The scholarship is specifically to finance travel to the U.S. where the recipient has the opportunity to meet and play music with Swedish-American folk musicians. Johan was awarded the scholarship in 2009, but because of educational and work related commitments, has not been able to travel to the U.S. until this autumn.
This will be Johan’s first experience in the U.S., and he will be traveling to Seattle, the San Francisco area and to Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. About his music and the opportunity to share it, Johan said, ”What I like most about playing the fiddle is meeting other musicians and making music together. I meet many interesting and talented people that I would not otherwise meet!”
