BISMARCK - In conjunction with the eighth annual Arthur A. Link Fiddle Festival, the public is invited to attend a free concert at 7 p.m. on March 21 by John Lardinois, known locally as Fiddlin’ Johnny. Lardinois will be accompanied by the Frog Holler String Band. The free concert will be held in the Russell Reid Auditorium at the North Dakota Heritage Center.
The Arthur A. Link Fiddle Festival is sponsored by the Society for the Preservation of the Former Governors' Mansion, the State Historical Society of North Dakota, Bismarck Public Schools, and the North Dakota Council on the Arts to promote string music education and appreciation in honor of Governor Arthur A. Link and his love of playing the violin.
John Lardinois received his Master of Music degree from the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, Ohio. He teaches violin and viola at Earlham College and IU East in Richmond, Indiana, as well as at the University of Dayton. When not teaching violin, Lardinois performs with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Fiddle Festival taking place at the Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site is open to the public, but due to the number of student and families participating, space will be limited. For more information on all Fiddle Festival activities on March 20 and 21, email email@example.com.
