Abstract

Two international folk music festivals were established in Norway in the end of the 1980s, both by people from the traditional Norwegian music scene, and both with the goal to win new audiences for this music. Both have had remarkable success, but while many urban members of the audience now enjoy both foreign and Norwegian music at the festivals, the traditional musicians have not embraced them. They do not form a large part of the audience and they are not offering the kind of stageable productions the festival programmers are looking for. As a consequence the festivals concentrate increasingly on local audiences.
