Legacy Program: Scandinavian Folk Music – Walker
February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Come join us for an engaging program featuring Scandinavian folk music. Arne Anderson, Paul Wilson, Mary Abendroth and Bob Anderson of the Brainerd area will present a program about violin building and Scandinavian folkmusic. Arne Anderson studied violin making in Cremona, Italy starting in 1973. He has been a stringed instrument builder for half a century. Paul Wilson took a Folk Arts Apprenticeship grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board to study violin building in 1995 and has been building special understring, Scandinavian-styled violins. The two of them will talk about the craft of violin building and then, with the help of their fellow musician friends, entertain with lot of lively waltzes, shottishes, polkas and songs.
This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
