NORWEGIAN HARDANGER FIDDLES

Demonstrating Artist

Bevan Wulfenstein

Friday & Saturday only, Canopy B

Bevan Wulfenstein celebrates his Norwegian heritage by constructing beautiful Hardanger fiddles. Hardanger fiddles or hardingfele are different from classical violins in that they typically have eight or nine layered strings and are made of thinner wood. Hardanger fiddles produce a rich, droning sound when played. Bevan learned instrument building from his father, a master violin maker, and has spent years studying this intricate art form.
