An article from Vesterheim, Vol. 7, N0. 2, 2009 – Vesterheim and the Norwegian-American Folk Music Project

Since 2007 Anna Rue’s work in Madison, Wisconsin, has included the Norwegian-American Folk Music Project, a collaborative venture to promote access to and knowledge of little-known recordings and materials relating to Norwegian-American folk music.

In this article, she highlights her discoveries in Vesterheim’s archives of the Folk Music Festival, held during Nordic Fest in Decorah starting in 1968.
