    The Longest Night

    In Norway the festival of Lussinatten celebrates the longest night of the year. Legend has it that on this night, Lussi, a feared enchantress, punishes anyone who dares to work, and from Lussinatten until Christmas, spirits, gnomes and trolls roam the Earth. Join us to celebrate with devilish tunes, ancient Irish, Norwegian and English folk carols and other festive musical treats.
