A short biography translated from a chapter in Granvin's Saga by Ph. S. Haukenaes, 1915; and as told by Olav Kjerland of Granvin, Hardanger, Norway, 1969:

...Within three days Hardanger lost its two best fiddlers who were the closest of friends. Ole Sjursen Haastabo, farmer from Hamre, died the 6th of November; while Lars died the 9th of November, 1899 at the age of 77. During his last days he made his home with his son Oddmund paa Kjerlandshagen. Both Ole and Lars died of a nose bleed (possibly a brain hemorrhage). Both repose side by side at Granvin's churchyard.
