UW–Madison Spring 2022 Musician-in-Residence Beth Hoven Rotto is returning from Decorah, Iowa, for another Old-Time Barn Dance with the Scandinavian American Old-Time Dance Music Ensemble she formed while on campus. Her husband Jon will be joining in the music making as well. The dance is happening at The Old Barn on Capitol View, where the dance they held in May 2022 happened. Expect a slightly rustic setting, with portable toilets, some original (and uneven) floorboards, and a cheerful, casual atmosphere! The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided.
This event is sponsored by Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures, the Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Arts in the Upper Midwest project, Mills Music Library, Mead Witter School of Music, and the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic+.
