Ladies of the Fjord

Norwegian Hardanger Fiddle Music

Ladies of the Fjord is a trio composed of Carlyce Skjervem, Lora Lee, and Karen Rebholz. We play Norwegian Hardanger Fiddles, the national instrument of Norway. Our music consists of bygdedans (country dances) that evolved in the isolated valleys of Southern Norway, primarily the springer, halling, and gangar. We also play tunes used in traditional Norwegian weddings, and gamaldans (couples dance music) from Europe that became popular in Norway in the 1800's. Karen Rebholz, who also builds these beautiful instruments, will have a display of hardanger fiddles and their construction.
