Monday, July 22, 4:00 PM —1 PERFORMANCE ONLY
Church in the Forest
Edwin Huizinga, violin and William Coulter, guitar, known as Fire & Grace, is joined by Swedish nyckelharpa virtuoso Olov Johansson, foremost performer on the traditional Swedish instrument called the NyckelHarpa.  The trio will present repertoire folk and Baroque music from Scandinavia. Some repertoire features the unique Hardanger Fiddle, a traditional stringed instrument used to play the music of Norway. In modern designs, this type of fiddle is very similar to the violin, though with eight or nine strings (rather than four as on a standard violin) and thinner wood. Four of the strings are strung and played like a violin, while the rest, aptly named understrings or sympathetic strings, resonate under the influence of the other four.
