“Edwin’s First” Polska

mp3 download


This is a Swedish Fiddle Tune I learned from the ASI Spelmanslag, a group that is keeping traditional Swedish Fiddling alive in a beautiful way here in Minnesota.

The story I heard about this tune goes something like this:  A long time ago, in a country far, far away (Sweden), young Edwin Johnson was sent to bed while the adults had a barn dance.  They played this tune over and over again and it worked it’s way into Edwin’s mind.  So the next day he dug up a fiddle and figured out how to play this song.

I play it here on the Dakota Mandolin with some backing instruments.  If  you like this you might want to check out the Spelmanslag’s CD – Love is Hard to Hide.

Here is the sheet music:
