Marit Steinsrud

Marit Steinsrud grew up in a folk music family in Valdres, and as a small girl she learned many langeleik tunes “by ear” from neighbouring women. Marit and her husband Stein have been at most Nordic Harp Meetings so far, represented the Norwegian langeleik tradition, and led the allspel with Norwegian folk tunes. They have organised the marvellous NHM 2010 and NHM 2014 in Gjøvik.

At the NHM 2016, Marit will teach traditional Norwegian dance tunes on the langeleik.
