Engelsholm Folk High School: songwriter course in a castle

In September 2010, I was offered a scholarship to attend the Songwriting Course at Engelsholm Folk High School. Engelsholm is a castle from the 15th century and the Folk High School concept is quite a beautiful thing: it’s not about grades but about soaking yourself in the subject of your choice. They always have several international students each semester, so if you’re into songwriting, electronic music, glass blowing, painting, ceramics and/or jewelry and would like to live on a magical castle from the 15th century with lake view, go for it. You can take short and long courses.
