Harrogate, Tennessee, March 17, 2017— The Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) Paul V. School of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences will host the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc on Thursday, March 30, 2017. The performance will take place in the Sam and Sue Mars Performing Arts Center in the Duke Hall of Citizenship building. The concert is set to begin at 7:30 p.m.
The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a fiddle trio that blends the traditions of Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands. The three musicians, Olav Luksengård Mjelva of Norway, Anders Hall of Sweden and Kevin Henderson of the Shetland Islands, have gained a reputation for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music since the inception of the Bloc in early 2009. The trio’s goal is to maintain a firm focus on the traditions of their home while developing a sound that has been described as meaningful, intense and invigorating.
The trio’s music has taken them to the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland and across mainland Europe.
The concert is free and open to the public.
