Biography

Eric Sahlström (1912-1986 CE) was a Swedish player of the nyckelharpa, and riksspelman awardee from Tobo in northern Uppland, Sweden.

Eric Sahlström is one of those who most contributed most to the renaissance of the nyckelharpa (“key fiddle”) in modern times. The instrument at that point had some small popularity amongst a handful of musicians in Uppland, but Sahlström as a design engineer and luthier further developed the instrument, including refining the chromatic nyckelharpa which can play any key. He also composed a large number of folk songs. Among the most famous include the waltz Spelmansglädje (“Fiddler Joy”) and the polskas Stormyren and Hardrevet.
