Arna's lifelong interest in Norwegian folk music began with first learning from her mother and later studying at the Institute of Folk Culture in Rauland, Telemark. While there, she gained an understanding of the ancient roots of traditional singing based on the overtone flute. Arna creates an atmosphere of Nordic culture around her -- be it in her log home in Normanna Township, Scandinavian cuisine, storytelling, painting, playing ancient instruments, singing or performing with her ensemble, Nordic Angst.
