Volume 3
Traditional Folk Music


A survey of the whole breadth of Swedish folk music. Many of the recordings were made " in the field" - from 1942 onwards - in the summer pastures and in the homes of folk musicians and singers. Others reflect the Swedish folk music of the present day, partly in traditional form and partly in the vigorous mixture of musical styles developed during recent years. Among those contributing are Karin Edwards, Pelle Jakobsson, Eric Sahlström, Gössa Anders, Pål Olle, Susanne Rosenberg, Per Gudmundson and Marie Selander as well as folk music groups Norrlåtar, Väsen, Frifot and Hedningarna.

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.
