Oregon Art Beat

Hardanger Fiddle

It’s the national instrument of Norway, but only a few people in America have mastered the Hardanger Fiddle. We visit Eugene to meet one man who makes Hardangers and another who plays them, helping to keep Norway’s traditional music and dance alive in Oregon.

First Broadcast: 2003
