Heimtali Craft Fair

Music from the Heimtali Handicraft Fair, which included 7% beer from Saaremaa; many craft demonstration; a 100m walk and knit race with points awarded for graceful falling in the event of not-looking-where-one-was-going, fine handiwork, and speed; and this wonderful accordion music, accompanied by some form of tool-making and general Estonian chit-chat.

For a little comparison to links between British handicrafts and UK folk music, you might enjoy listening to the Mayday Knit Weekly Feature which Felicity Ford put together for BBC Oxford in 2010.
