Well, as you may have guessed from previous articles here on, I am addicted to music festivals! I am always searching for them, wherever I go. I recently found out about the Telemark International Folk Music Festival, or Telemarkfestivalen, in Bo, Telemark, Norway, held each July. This music festival presents authentic folk music from around the world, and offers more than 200 concerts and performances, as well as workshops and classes for all ages.
