A film about Lebanon, abandonment, decay, and architecture.

In the small, tightly knit city of Tripoli, Lebanon, where family bonds run very deep, a forty-year-old man still lives with his elderly mother and has given up on the idea of becoming independent. But when one day his mother suddenly leaves him, the man is left with nothing but the company of the small city and what it offers.

Fiddles, Tunes & Tales from Norway

Toby Weinberg, Fiddle PlayerSaturday, February 7, 2015
2:30 PM, Petit Branch
Featuring: Toby Weinberg

Come listen to the sounds of the Hardanger fiddle and experience the Spelemann's art.  In the old tradition in Norway, the Spelemann was both a fiddler and a story teller.  The tunes and stories have come down to us across the centuries as an oral tradition learned by rote by each new generation.  Toby Weinberg is one of the preeminent performers on the Hardanger fiddle in North America, and the only one dedicated to keeping alive the Spelemann's art of storytelling as well as the music.  We believe that this combination is a distant echo of the ancient art of the Viking skalds, though the fiddle has replaced the harp for more than 400 years, and the stories are no longer sung but told.
