ST GEORGE’S 150th ANNIVERSARY 1860 - 2010

Harald Haugaard 13th May 2010

Fiddler, composer, producer

Harald Haugaard began playing the violin at the age of 7 years old. His teacher was the local organ player in the village of Harndrup in the northwest region of the island Funen where Harald grew up.

From the very beginning folk music was his biggest inspiration. One of his earliest and greatest influences was his grandfather Johannes who was a local wood carver and traditional accordion player.

His mother Lene Sand Christensen was highly active in the folk dance environment as caller and teacher. Quite soon Haugaard began to play for her dances. The traditional Danish dance music became one of Harald’s biggest musical platforms and still today this genre appears prominently in his performances.

St Georges Church were lucky enough to have Harold and his band to perform in St George’s Church as part of the Rural Arts Touring Scheme.
