Tinndølan Dancers and SingersName: Tinndølan Dancers and SingersDate: July 27, 2017Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM CDTWebsite: http://www.stoughtonoperahouse.comEvent Description:Tinndølan is a Norwegian folk music and folk dance group from Tinn in Telemark. The group consists of 18 members aged 13 to 21. They practice the dance, song and fiddle traditions from Tinn and Telemark, but also do other music and dance traditions. Based on the skills of each individual they construct performances. As a group they perform at several local events, as well as almost each individual is active participating at “kappleiks” throughout the year. A “kappleik” is a competition where people compete in for instance dance, song and playing the fiddle, as well as some other categories. Members are getting great results at these “kappleiks”, both local and regional, and even at the annual national competition. Four members are actually Norwegian champions in the youngest class (from 12-18 years). Their intention is to keep traditions alive so the next generation can experience the joy and value of their cultural heritage. We are also involved in teaching dance, song and fiddle to big groups of children.
