VinterFolk is a sister project in RETHINK Folk Music, which coordinates folk music trips around Europe for the students and teachers in the RETHINK Folk Music project.
The idea of VinterFolk is to let the students work with the most inspiring and interesting folk music acts today. Through the VinterFolk program, the students work for days with professional folk music artist, which results in a few public concerts, where the students play alongside the professionals. As folk music festivals and workshops are mainly held through early to late summer, VinterFolk arranges folk music trips to lighten up the winter with folk music experiences. In the winter of 2014/2015 VinterFolk was held in Aarhus, Denmark. In the winter of 2015/2016 VinterFolk visited Verdal, Norway, and in the winter of 2016/2017 VinterFolk will travel to Umeå, Sweden.
