- a summer school in Norwegian traditional folk music for people of all ages!


Mokurset is an annual summer school in Norwegian traditional folk music. Since 1984, over 2,000 students between the ages of 9-70 years have attended Mokurset. Many of the students originate from the Western part of Norway, but also from the rest of the country. We’ve also had visitors from Sweden, UK and USA, and now we hope to see YOU there!

The teachers at Mokurset include some of the finest musicians in Norway, who have broad experience both as tutors and as performing artists. At Mokurset you get to learn Norwegian traditional tunes by ear, and you will also be guided in traditional style and technique. There are classes for all levels, and daily concerts, dance and other social activities which students and teachers alike participate in. Both teachers and students are accomodated at the school campus.

In 2013 Mokurset will offer classes in:

  • Hardanger Fiddle (with Sigmund Eikås, Leif Erik Stuhaug, Gro Marie Svidal, Annlaug Børsheim and Einar Ese)
  • Traditional Folk Song (with Unni Løvlid)
