Syttende Mai with Vesterheim
Join Vesterheim for this free, lunchtime webinar as we celebrate Syttende Mai!

Norwegian storyteller Anne Elisebeth Skogen will join the webinar from Ryfylkemuseet at Sand, Norway to tell the story, 'Schoolgirl and My Very First May 17th Parade in 1962.' Anne Elisebeth grew up in the little town of Egersund, Norway, south of Stavanger. With an education in drama and storytelling, Anne Elisebeth runs her own storytelling business, telling stories for schools, organizations, festivals, and companies.

Next, Decorah musicians Beth and Jon Rotto (playing fiddle and rhythm guitar, respectively) will offer Norwegian and Norwegian-American tunes from the Bethania Church in Vesterheim's Heritage Park. Beth and Jon are founding members of the dance band Foot-Notes, who have been playing for old-time dances in the Decorah area for over three decades.

Vesterheim is very grateful to Jeff and Marilyn Roverud for their long-time sponsorship of Vesterheim’s Syttende Mai celebration!
