World Records 2018

Thursday, April 12, 2018 - 1:30pm to Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 9:00pm
University Club; 126 Memorial Library; UW-Madison

This year, we've lent the World Records Symposium to our friends at the Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Music in the Upper Midwest project here at UW-Madison. The 2018 event welcomes musicians, folklorists, historians, community members, and plenty more from throughout the Upper Midwest and the Nordic countries to Madison. We’ll be exploring the documentation and revitalization efforts of Scandinavian musical traditions on both sides of the Atlantic.

Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures; the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic; the Mills Music Library; the Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Arts in the Upper Midwest grant; and the Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture.
