Julane performed Norwegian music on violin and Hardanger fiddle at the Madden Art Center in Decatur, Illinois on June 7, 2013. The performance was held during the opening of a special Norwegian exhibit at the center.
Glenna and Karl Pearson, of Park Ridge, Illinois, danced to Julane's music and demonstrated traditional Norwegian dances to the crowd.
Julane's feet tapped out the beat while being dressed in her bunad attire. All photos from the Madden Art Center performance were taken by Lisa Morrison, of the Herald and Review of Decatur, Illinois.
