Volume 18
Folk Tunes from Dala-Floda, Enviken & Ore

Musicians:
Agenmark, Nils / Berggren, Pontus / Olle (Olof Dyrsmeds), Phl / Ersson, Alm Nils / Afework, Yohannes


With the tunes from Enviken and Ore can be heard a close teamwork performance by four skilful players, Nils Agenmark (1915-1994), Pontus Berggren (b 1935), Phl Olle (Olof Dyrsmeds, 1915-1987) and Alm Nils Ersson (b 1942). The fiddlers' quartet, which actually set a trend for other players, was recorded in 1971 by the Swedish radio producer, Matts Arnberg. The Enviken tunes were all part of the repertoire of Wilhelm Hedlund (1868-1946), and the tunes from Ore were earlier played by the best-known fiddler of the parish, Timas Hans Hansson (1846-1916). The tunes from Dala-Floda were recorded in 1957, when Olof Tillman (1878-1962) played both on his own and together with his sons. Tillman took a conscious responsibility for the traditions of Dala-Floda, including the revival of the Hupplek, a suite of dances whose origins go back a long way. The material was earlier issued on two LPs, which have now, using 20-bit technology, been transferred to a CD.
