Ann-Marita's Scandinavian roots

 

 

"Company Town", written by Ann-Marita Garsed, from the album "Intuition" (2007).

 

Ann-Marita was born and raised near what is arguably the most famous of the Norwegian fjords; Geirangerfjord. This area of Western Norway is steeped in traditional Norwegian culture and folklore.

Ann-Marita also lived for many years in Northern Norway, in a mining town north of the Arctic Circle.

Over the years, she collected an arsenal of her favorite Scandinavian folk songs, and in addition to performing her own brand of American country/folk music, on many occasions she has also put on her Norwegian bunad and performed traditional Scandinavian music at events all over the United States.

Some of Ann-Marita's past Scandinavian shows include:

Norway Day Festival (San Francisco, CA), Norsk Høstfest (Minot, ND), Scandinavian Festival of Southern California (Thousand Oaks, CA), Scandinavian Festival (Budd Lake, NJ), Scandinavian Day Festival (Elgin, IL), Norrønna Lodge (Van Nuys, CA), and the wrap party for Disney Animation movie Frozen (Hollywood, CA).
