Old-Time Barn Dance with Beth Hoven Rotto and the Scandinavian-American Old-Time Ensemble

Fri May 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Coming off the heels of a fantastic debut performance in the Great Hall of Memorial Union on UW-Madison’s campus, UW-Madison Musician-In-Residence Beth Hoven Rotto and the Scandinavian-American Old-Time Ensemble will be performing their old-time repertoire for dancers at a recently refurbished barn in Middleton, WI. This event will be about as close as you’ll come to an old-time barn dance from the turn of the 20th century, featuring dance tunes of the Scandinavian-Americans who settled in the Driftless Area. Expect a slightly rustic setting, with portable toilets, some original (and uneven) floorboards, and a cheerful, casual atmosphere!

The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided. Carpooling and masks encouraged but not required.

We hope to see you there!

Friday, May 13th
6:30-8:30pm
The Old Barn on Capitol View
4796 Capitol View Rd, Middleton, WI 53562
