Traditional Scandinavian music with Vestafor October 7th at The Loft

Vestafor at The Loft

Tuesday, October 7th 7:00pm
516-1/2 Chestnut Street
Downtown Virginia MN

VESTAFOR is made up of 3 American musicians specializing in Traditional Scandinavian music and dance. The group is outfitted in the proper traditional attire, much like they would have been in the 1800's and the songs they will play are just as old, if not older.
Our area of the Iron Range is steeped in tradition, and proud of it. Keeping traditions is what families of every nationality has done since they arrived here to mine and log this great area of ours. Music is one thing that lightened the heavy load of hard working people here, traditional music - like that of their homeland. I can guarantee that some of the songs that VESTAFOR will play, our ancestors who descended here have heard before. The melodies go from haunting, to solemn, to up beat waltzes to charming wedding marches. Let your ears decide how your heart will feel as the music fills up your soul!
