A crafty, bottomless love of Norway

Thor A. Larsen Fishkill, N.Y. I met Tore about 15 years ago when he was wearing a bunad and playing Norwegian music with his Hardanger fiddle at a historical building in Fishkill, N.Y. Tore’s musical skills and his beautiful bunad were an incredible surprise here in Upstate New York, not known for many Norwegian Americans. When my daughter was getting married, we hired Tore to come and play his Hardanger Fiddle, and his presence and talent provided a rich reminder of our daughter’s heritage to her friends and our American friends. Recently I learned that Tore not only loves Norwegian fiddle music but has an intense love for everything Norwegian. One can only appreciate this intense love by visiting his home in Carmel, N.Y., which I did recently. [caption
