Every summer, our Hardanger Fiddle Music and Dance Workshops offer an extended weekend of intensive workshops in Hardanger fiddling and dancing. Participants from throughout the country gather in the upper Midwest for learning, playing, dancing, and fun. Fiddlers without instruments of their own are invited to enroll in our Workshop Hardingfele Loan Program. Click on a link below to read about past workshops and festivals.
