I’m going to organise links to sound recordings here. Some will be inline, some will link to Soundcloud but that may change.

I also have a tune transcriptions page.


A first go at recording Spelmansgladjen by Eric Sahlström. I have wanted to be able to play this for years. A few bum notes, but it’s getting there. This will no doubt be the first of many attempts!
