This year, the World Records Symposium is welcoming musicians, folklorists, historians, community members, and plenty more from throughout the Upper Midwest and the Nordic countries to Madison. We’ll be exploring the documentation and revitalization efforts of Scandinavian musical traditions on both sides of the Atlantic. From April 12–14, we will be hosting roundtable discussions with artists and academics, two nights of concerts with musicians from Scandinavia and Scandinavian America, a community dance at Folklore Village in Dodgeville, WI, and will feature a keynote address from Dr. Christopher Goertzen.

Roundtables and lectures in Rm 126 Memorial Library. Concert Thursday (7:30-9:30 pm) and concert plus reception Fri (6-9 pm)  at University Club, 803 State St.

Community dance Saturday 7:30-9 pm, Folklore Village, Dodgeville. For full schedule of events:        https://gns.wisc.edu/event/sustaining-scandinavian-folk-music-in-the-upper-midwest/
