On February 28th, 2018, two of Norway’s most well known musicians performed at the 75th anniversary of the heavy water sabotage at Vemork in Rjukan, Norway. Sigmund Groven and fiddle master Knut Buen entertained military officers, mayors, ambassadors and the general audience with both international classics and local music. In the videos below you can hear some of the music from the mini concert. (Norsk versjon her.)
