London Hardingfelelag


The London Hardingfelelag is a group of musicians who meet up monthly to perform traditional Norwegian tunes on the hardingfele or Hardanger fiddle, the nine-stringed instrument unique to Southwestern Norway. 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, creating a curious and beautiful ringing sound. The Hardingfele is used for dancing, often accompanied by rhythmic loud foot stomping, but it was also traditional for a fiddler to lead a bridal procession to the church.
