Folk Dancing on Cape Drakkar

Recommended Posts

Cape Drakkar has an ancient folk music tradition. Instrumental music is most commonly played on the fiddle or on the Drakkar Bay Fiddle which is considered the jarlial instrument of Norway. The Drakkar Bay Fiddle is a violin with four or five sympathetic strings. It is beautifully decorated and is constructed somewhat differently from an ordinary violin. The traditional music with its associated dances has resisted all the changing fashions of music through the ages and is today firmly embedded in the Traditional Districts’s culture.

Since it has been passed along continuously from generation to generation, there has been no need for a folk music revival. Cape Drakkar has a strong and active body of folk musicians and dancers. This, together with in-depth research and professional collections and archives, has meant that the variations and dialects have been retained and developed into a rich variety of both music and dance.
