The 7th Annual Door County Nordic Fiddle Fest presents acclaimed Celtic fiddler Hanneke Cassel and Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Vidar Skrede in Door County for the first time. Fiddle Fest is held at Björklunden, 7590 Boynton Lane in Baileys Harbor. This year the festival concert highlights original music and traditional music from Scotland, Cape Breton Island and Scandinavia, and explore the synergy between those cultures.
Cassel is an effervescent and engaging performer, a fantastic fiddler, and one of today’s leading proponents of the Scottish and Cape Breton styles, fused with cutting-edge contemporary grooves.
Skrede hails from Haugesund, Norway, and plays Hardanger fiddle, guitar, and writes dynamic music which is entering the standard repertory worldwide.
Fiddle Fest is Aug. 10 at 7 pm. Admission is $20 per person, limited to 120 seats only. Tickets may be reserved in advance by calling 920.839.2366, or purchased at the door, first-come first-serve cash only. A reception follows the performance.
