Crossing the North Sea – Pacific NW Folklore Society Concert
November 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10
“Crossing the North Sea” is a collaboration between Hardingfela player, Rachel Nesvig, and Scottish fiddler, Brandon Vance, whose repertoire explores the cross-pollination of fiddle styles that have developed as a result of the maritime trade routes between Norway, Shetland, and points beyond! Rachel has been playing the Hardanger Fiddle (hardingfela) since high school and was the first student at St. Olaf College to receive Distinction in Hardanger Fiddle in 2007. She has studied fiddle both in the US and in Norway. Brandon is a two-time U.S. Open National Scottish Fiddle Champion. With a B.M. and M.M. in Violin Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music, he has performed and taught internationally, as a guest lecturer at the University of Limerick’s Irish World Academy, and guest artist at the William Kennedy Piping Festival in Armagh. $10 donation.
