THE NORDIC FIDDLERS BLOC is Olav Luksengård Mjelva, Anders Hall and Kevin Henderson who come from Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands respectively, which has some of the richest fiddling traditions in the world as well as many well documented historical links going back hundreds of years. They are three of the finest young fiddlers currently working in the folk music scene and are in great demand playing in various musical constellations throughout the world. They have blended three individual styles from these three Nordic regions but still allow their three distinct flavors to come through in a sound that is unique, meaningful, intense and invigorating. The project is the brainchild of Anders Hall who felt that combining the three unique distinctive fiddle styles together would create a special sound. Anders hunch proved to be correct after first exchanging musical thoughts with each other in Voss in May 2009. From the first note that was played they realized this was a collaboration that had to continue such was the feeling of excitement and respect for each other’s playing and traditions.

Kiersten Hall is from Austin, MN.
Between 1990 through 2006, I co-owned
“I Do” Productions Wedding Videography.
As a co-owner, I worked with the couples both pre and post-nuptial, as well as videotaped and edited the weddings. At the height of our successful years, “I Do” actually had three video crews going out on Saturdays. The stories within this book are of the weddings I personally worked with, including videotaped and/or edited.

The Harmony Public Library invites you to spend the afternoon learning about the history of rosemaling Local artist Betty Dowe will share her knowledge on this traditional Norwegian art form.
Rosemaling classes will be scheduled with Betty through the library during our 2016 Centennial Year of Celebration.
Read on for information directly from Betty.
“I began taking classes in Rosemaling in 1978, through a continuing education class in Decorah IA., where I lived with my family. In 1980, I began teaching the beginning classes and continued to explore the different styles and patterns. Living in Decorah I was able to take advantage of Rosemaling classes at Vesterheim Museum. First 11 years I painted in oils but now use acrylics. As Editor of the Vesterheim Rosemaling Letter for 8 years I was able to meet and study with many Master Rosemalers. In 1987 I was the Editor of Vesterheim “Rosemalers’ Recipes” Cookbook.”
