Swedish-American vocalist IVA is a true crossover artist, having successfully bridged the gap between singer-songwriter and classical musician. Her music has carried her across two continents and gained her accolades in both genres. She's been tapped as Who's Next by M Musicians Magazine, touted as supremely talented by Guitar World's Acoustic Nation, called a remarkable talent & the real thing by TriState Indie, and featured in Billboard Magazine as an artist to watch. Originally trained in New York conservatories, she moved to Stockholm, Sweden on a Fulbright scholarship to sing opera. But thanks to a chance meeting the year before, she found herself singing on Conan O'Brien and started recording her own popular music. She signed with New York label Vurse, and later with Universal Sweden, launching onto national Swedish radio and TV while making her debut at the Royal Opera of Stockholm. She returned to the U.S. to form her own band, releasing her first U.S. album Leap to NPR and tastemaker stations across the country. In 2015 the Vasa Order of America named IVA Swedish American of the Year for her contributions to cultural exchange between Sweden and to the United States. Past honorees include actress Ann Margaret, lunar astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and Nils Löfgren of Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band. She is the youngest honoree to date.

Roger Latzgo
Hans Christian Andersen StorySongs Composer/performer Roger Latzgo will bring his musical settings of stories by Hans Christian Andersen. Latzgo, who first learned music at his accordion-playing grandfather's knee, continued his formal studies at Rutgers College and the Mason Gross School of the Arts. For Scanfest 2023, Roger presents Hans Christian Andersen StorySongs. Songs include his musical settings of "The Ugly Duckling", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Little Match Girl" and others. Among the newer StorySongs is Latzgo's musical version of a lesser-known Hans Christian Andersen story sometimes translated as "The Millennium". In it, Andersen imagines what travel in Europe will be like one thousand years from his own time. The master storyteller spins it with uncanny accuracy. Latzgo makes it contemporary with a tempo di rap setting. Roger is on a musical mission: to enhance understanding and deep appreciation of Hans Christian Andersen through the power of music. We know that ScanFest audiences will love joining him on this journey.

Jeanne Eriksson, MC, is the daughter of the late maestro Walter Eriksson and plays accordion, keyboard and teaches dance. Her son is the percussionist, and Wayne Söderlund is their modern-day maestro making sounds with his electronic Roland accordion that sets them far apart from your "farfar's" gammaldans orchestra.

They've performed overseas in Sweden and Åland, and have appeared at countless celebrations. They have a residency at The Village Lanterne on Long Island and their enthusiasm is contagious.

Wire You Waiting
At Wire You Waiting, we take the ancient Viking Wire Weave technique and bring it into the modern era by using modern wire and color options, resulting in beautiful, unique jewelry. Viking Wire Weave is a technique used to make jewelry and adornments (clothing/housewares), found in the grave sites of the Norse peoples from the 8th-10th centuries. Wire is woven around a wooden mandrel, then drawn through a paddle with gradually smaller holes, compressing the weave, making the final chain thinner but significantly stronger. Due to the time and cost of this process, it tended to be worn by the upper class Norsemen. Viking Wire Weaving is more rare than the twisted wire jewelry, which uses a thicker piece of metal and usually made at a forge. Historically, men would wear a necklace and/or a single bracelet. Women, on the other hand, would wear any and all adornments (Note: bracelets tended to be worn in pairs for balance).
