The Fargo Spelemannslag is a group of intergenerational musicians and instrument makers from western Minnesota and eastern North Dakota who come together to learn the art of Norwegian hardanger fiddling. The co-founders are members of the Hardanger Fiddle Association of America, and several members have made trips to Norway to learn more about the specifics of this unique form of folk music that is intended to accompany dancers. The hardanger fiddle is similar to a violin except it has eight strings, four of which are sympathetic causing the instrument to be quite resonant and is highly decorated with patterned inlay and delicate ink rosing. It can have a variety of personalities, but often has a mournful sound, a voice that is highly featured in the music from the movies, Fargo and the Two Towers from the Lord of the Rings.
