cd cover Æ Tinuser (The Tinus Brothers)
Gammeldans & Knågstykker (2 CDs - Folk Music Center of Hogager, Denmark)

A 2 CD set of traditional music from Denmark. Gammeldans and Knågstykker present traditional dance music from Western Jutland, played by three old musicians - Hans Nielsen (1906-95), fiddle, Karl Nielsen (1911-83), piano, and Ejnar Nielsen (1911- 83), drums and trombone. Together they were known as Æ Tinuser, 'The Tinus Brothers.' Their mixture of traditional tunes and standard popular dance music made them very popular up to the mid-60’s. By the 1970’s and 80’s they were experiencing a revival, due to the overall revival of traditional popular music. This recording is an interesting example of where the line blurs between "popular" and "folk" music.
Gammeldans was recorded in 1978-79, Knågstykker was recorded in 1965 and 1969. Most of the performances were in front of an audience, often pretty clearly in a restaurant or bar. Extensive notes are in Danish, with a summary in English.

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.
