The accordion, clarinet, fiddle and nyckelharpa are among the most common Swedish folk instruments. The instrumental genre is the biggest one in Swedish traditional music. In the 1960s, Swedish youth sparked a roots revival in Swedish folk culture.

Swedish folk music is a genre of music based largely on folkloric collection work that began in the early 19th century in Sweden. The primary instrument of Swedish folk music is the fiddle. Another common instrument, unique to Swedish traditions, is the nyckelharpa. Most Swedish instrumental folk music is dance music; the signature music and dance form within Swedish folk music is the polska.

Swedish folk music traditions, consequently, were studied and archived. Though the society was short-lived (it dissolved after a decade long dormancy in 1844), it managed to shine a light on the country’s musical traditions with Arvid Afzelius’s groundbreaking anthology of folksongs: Swedish Songs from Antiquity. Included in Afzelius’s anthology of songs were some from Sweden’s extensive ballad tradition. The beginning of the 1970s ushered in a taste for jazz, rock and pop and the folk music tradition slowly faded from the foreground of the Swedish music scene. Now, we can find traces of both the ballad and the folk music tradition in all corners of the country.

Swedish traditional music (the Swedish word is folkmusik) is definitely alive, and there are lots of people all over Sweden who play it. Someone who plays traditional music is called a spelman, plural spelmän (the verb att spela means "to play (music)"). A typical small festival is the spelmansstämma, plural spelmansstämmor (which means something like "musicians meeting"). Most places in Sweden have one of these meetings once a year. Some of the meetings are small, some (. the one in Bingsjö in the beginning of July) are very big with thousands of people arriving in for. There are folk music clubs all over Sweden which organize concert, dance and session nights. Many Swedish tunes are called something like Polska efter Erik Olsson.
