Here are videos from the Nyckelharpstämma that I’ve put on YouTube. Thanks Marwyn for doing the recordings, this time on a little Nikon Coolpix A10 which at present is our video camera.
It starts with the spelmanståg (players’ procession), this year with the two tunes Brännvinsmarschen and Harpar-Klas Gånglåt.
Once we reached the stage, the allspel was started by Peo Österholm on cowhorn – the “inblåsning”!
The allspel followed; here are a couple of tunes. An old favourite, Polska efter Båtsman Däck:
The allspel finished with an audience request – a tune not on the allspel list. It’s Eric Sahlström’s “Spelmansglädje” which is not (yet) in my repertoire so I chickened out:
It was great fun and I enjoyed it even more this year as I know the tunes better.
