The Oslo-based Norwegian folk music group Feleboga is fit as a fiddle and ready to play "Fiddle Music from the Valleys of Norway and Hills of Appalachia." Hans-Hinrich Thedens, Elizabeth Gaver and youngster Mattias Thedens fill the intimate Cherry Center with their lively hardingfele (traditional Norwegian stringed instrument, similar to violin but with eight or nine strings) playing and dancing. Their fiddling skills and repertoire—featuring songs ranging from older, intricate listening pieces (lyderlater), dance ditties (slatter) to newer gammeldans (literally "old song") tunes such as the waltz, reinlender and polka—has earned Feleboga stages in Norway, Germany, Poland, Iceland and Thailand.
