Ross Sutter and the Swedish Trio will present “A Scandinavian Christmas” at 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5 at the Robertson Theatre in Wadena.

The show is free and open to the public.

The group is best known for their Julglädje Swedish Christmas show that they have performed for more than 20 years at the American Swedish Institute. The trio includes Sutter on guitar, accordion and dulcimer; Marya Hart on piano; and Cheryl Paschke on the nyckelharpa, a traditional Swedish keyed fiddle.

For this year’s appearance in Wadena, the trio will play a rollicking set of Scandinavian and American holiday tunes. Sutter will add stories from his Swedish and Norwegian family Christmas experiences. Scandinavian dancers Adi and Christian Press complete the cast, ending the show with dancing around the Christmas tree.

“A Scandinavian Christmas” is presented by the Wadena County Historical Society. For more information, call 218-631-9079 or email This activity was made possible in part by a grant from the Five Wings Art Council, through a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
