Join us for an afternoon of music with Andrea Een.
Andrea studied the Hardanger fiddle, a nine-string folk violin unique to Norway, with some of the leading fiddlers in that country. She taught violin, viola, and Hardanger fiddle at St. Olaf College from 1977 to 2012, and was awarded the St. Olav Medal by King Harald V for her promotion of Norwegian culture in the United States in 2002. She will perform traditional tunes on the Hardanger fiddle, and talk about its history.
