Event Details

Ole Olsson’s Oldtime Orkestra is comprised of Art Bjorngjeld, accordion and fiddle; Paul Wilson, accordion & fiddle; Char Bostrom, fiddle; Frances Olson, fiddle; and Mary Abendroth, pump organ. They specialize in playing oldtime dance music and encourage all attendees that would like to dance to attend their sets!

Ole Olsson’s Oldtime Orkestra (usually referred to as O.O.O.O) is a fun loving group of musicians who first met at the Good Templar Hall in Minneapolis, MN playing Scandinavian dances in times gone by. Nowadays, they still play some pretty good Scandinavian music for oldtime dancing and/or just plain enjoying. They play fiddles, accordions, pump organ, guitar, and some sing some funny Scandinavian vaudeville songs that may occasionally make Lutheran ladies smile.

They play for festivals and lutefisk feeds all around Minnesota and even make it out of the state once in awhile in their old ‘yalopy’ to perform in far flung places. They have traveled from New York City, NY to Thousand Oaks, CA; from Minot, ND to Swedesburg, IA, all in their quest to spread the joy of Scandinavian folk music and perhaps find perfectly formed lefse.
