Christ Episcopal Church in Woodbury will host the last concert of the Christ Church 2018 Concert Series at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30. Renee Vaughan and Karl Lundeberg will present new and traditional Nordic music on nyckelharpa and 12-string guitar.

The one-hour concert will feature a unique sound, rooted in the traditional Scandinavian dance rhythms. Vaughan and Lundeberg share an affinity for Nordic music and have created their own unique sound that is firmly rooted in tradition.

Vaughan plays nyckelharpa, a rustic and earthy traditional Scandinavian instrument that dates back to the 1300s. She plays with a variety of constellations, and is a regular at the American Swedish Institute, Høstfest and Nisswa-Stämmän Scandinavian music festival.

Lundeberg's career in music as performer, composer and as a CBS/Sony recording artist has been met with critical acclaim. While Karl generally works in Los Angeles and New York, he inherited Midwestern Scandinavian musical roots from his mother, who played in their family band near Rice Lake, Wis.

Refreshments will be served following the concert. No tickets are necessary. A freewill offering will be taken with all proceeds going to the musicians. Christ Episcopal Church is located at 7305 Afton Road, Woodbury.
