Daughters of Norway to learn about the Hardanger fiddle

FALLBROOK – The Daughters of Norway Hulda Garborg Lodge #49 will be entertained by member Diane Gravlin and her husband Bob at the next meeting on May 14. Bob makes violins and Diane teaches people how to play them in addition to performing on the Hardanger fiddle herself.

The Hardanger fiddle is a traditional stringed instrument used to play accompaniment music for Southern Norway dances. It is similar to the violin, though it has eight or nine strings instead of the traditional four on a violin. It is highly decorated, with a carved animal or carved woman’s head as part of the scroll at the top.

The cultural program starts at 11 a.m. All women of Scandinavian heritage are welcome to attend the Daughters of Norway meetings held the second Saturday of each month at the Fallbrook Woman’s Club, 238 W. Mission Road, Fallbrook. A business meeting is held at 10 a.m. with the cultural program followed by lunch at noon.
