Celebration of Ole Bull in Bergen, Norway

Gregg is attending the Celebration of Ole Bull in Bergen, Norway, where his copy of the del Gesu "Ole Bull" violin is on display, along with 13 original late del Gesu violins (including the original Ole Bull) and other modern violins. Here are some photos from the event and from Ole Bull's house.
