The Annual Appeal for Old Songs Inc.

Our annual fund appeal supports our concerts, community dances, classes, festivals and other educational events such as our “hidden history” concerts. We ask for your support of whatever you feel comfortable giving. If you prefer to purchase a song brick, your money will help our capital fund to keep our building safe, warm, or cool as the case may be.

Either way don’t be a stranger and join us in 2017.


UPCOMING EVENTS

Rydvall & Mjelva
Friday, December 9, at 7:30 pm

Virtuosic Scandinavian folk musicians on Hardanger fiddle and Nyckelharpa.

Swedish keyed fiddle player Erik Rydvall and Hardanger fiddle player Olav Luksengård Mjelva, from Røros in Norway, are both counted among the foremost folk musicians of their generation. Rydvall and Mjelva are inquisitive musicians, with strong roots in the traditions of their places of origin. A duo collaboration featuring Hardanger fiddle and keyed fiddle has rarely been presented before. The repertoire and playing styles of the two instruments are basically very different, but the two musicians manage to make the combination sound natural and intriguing.
