RETHINK Folk Music Festival

Presented by Kulturskolen Skanderborg

Know your Hardangerfele from your Kokle? European folk music is vividly reinterpreted in this extraordinary cultural collaboration. 

Right now children and adolescents are developing an interest in vernacular music anchored in our common European roots. We are opening the eyes and ears of young people to their musical heritage across the continent. RETHINK Folk Music has established a co-operation between museums and music schools in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Latvia, Poland and France.

RETHINK Folk Music will transform school students into local music archaeologists. The project will culminate in performances in public spaces where musical history can be shared and celebrated.

27th June – 2nd July
