Quote from TSRA general manager Sylvia Jacobsen: "It is the business community in Arendal that has so far ensured that we can create this folk festival, together with a large group of volunteers, TSRA is created by local forces. The fact that large parts of Arendal are involved in creating the folk festival makes this extra rewarding!

See you in Arendal 3-6 August.
