Afterwards, there is dancing for everyone. Seating is limited so buy your tickets early.
Poulsbo Leikarringen is the premier young adult dance group in the greater Seattle area. They were the featured program at the centennial of Sons of Norway District 2 and wowed the delegates with their fast paced dances. It included the amazing athletic halling which culminated with the high kick off of the hat held on a long pole 10 feet in the air!
Barneleikarringen features performances of the children's dances of Norway and Scandinavia. The enthusiasm and smiles of youngsters ages 3-10 is heartwarming as they show off their skills in singing and dancing!
Toby Weinberg is widely recognized as one of the leading Hardanger fiddle players in North America. He has been learning, teaching and performing slåttar from Telemark and Numedal for more than 27 years. He is also an accomplished performer and teacher of other Norwegian instruments including ordinary fiddle, seljefløyte and munnharpe.
Jane Johnson has been playing at dances in the Puget Sound area for many years with her husband Jeff Anderson. She is a self taught musician, introduced to Nordic music through family links. Jane's father played fiddle and accordion. Jane was a late-bloomer who began playing the button accordion at around age 40.
Jeff Anderson is from Waterville, Washington, and has been playing fiddle since the age of 15. For over thirty years he has played for shows and dances. Both of his grandfathers were Norwegian-style fiddlers from North Dakota, and he is carrying on the musical traditions of his family. Both he and Jane play with Nordic Spirit, formed in 1999.
See you at the wild salmon dinner and performance by dancers Poulsbo Leikarringen and Barneleikarringen, and musicians Jane Johnson, Jeff Anderson and Toby Weinberg performance on Tuesday, August 13!
