Lars Fykerud (1860–1902) was a Norwegian Hardanger fiddler and composer. He was born in Sauherad; the son of folk musician Hans G. Fykerud and Torbjørg Larsdotter. Fykerud played the fiddle in the tradition of Knut Luraas, Håvard Gibøen and Myllarguten, and composed new tunes based on traditional folk music. A memorial of him is raised at Bø Church in Telemark, and he was biographed by H. Braaten in 1939.[1][2]
