Volume 11
Fiddlers from Five Provinces



Performers: Pettersson, Svante / Huldt, Sigvard / Berndt, Carl-Eric / Isacsson, Richard / Sahlström, Eric (1912 - 1986)

Some of the best-known fiddlers of the 1950s from five Swedish provinces are presented here. Both playing styles and instruments used reveal clearly the distinguishing characteristics of these different areas. All these players had an important role in the development and survival of Swedish folk music. Several of them carried out significant collecting work, while others created a greater interest in folk music among the general public, for instance through their many public appearances - also on radio and TV. Some, like Gustaf Jernberg, took great pains to make sure that the melodies he had learnt from earlier generations did not die out. The recordings took place between 1955 and 1960.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
