It is with great pleasure that we welcome Ottar back to Ski Dance Weekend.
Ottar hails from a village in Telemark called Arabygdi just north of Vinje. He is an A class fiddler who has taken top honors at Landskappleiken four times, and in 2011 won the coveted Kongepokalen which is awarded to fiddlers once every 8 years. In 2012 he released his first CD and was awarded the prestigious Spellemannprisen in the category of Folk/Traditional Music.
Ottar has a workshop in Bø, Telemark where he both makes and repairs Hardanger Fiddles.
