Fiddlepalooza returns as the Fiddle Club of the World once again teams up with the Old Town School of Folk Music fiddle program for an evening of listening and learning. This program is open to all fiddlers, players of other instruments and all lovers of traditional folk music.
We welcome from Denmark fiddler Kristian Bugge and accordionist Mette Jensen, childhood friends and music partners since 2001. Kristian Bugge is active in many Danish and Nordic folk music ensembles, including Baltic Crossing, Kings of Polka and Habadekuk. He has also been instrumental in promoting the Danish-American music of Dwight Lamb, an octogenarian fiddler and accordionist from Iowa. Kristian’s energetic fiddling is especially well-matched with the squeeze-box mastery of Mette Jensen. Give a listen . . .
