Norwegian / Swedish / Finnish traditions on winds
To jog my own well worn memories and for a new member here, ‘krysolove’, I’ve opened this to discussion, seeking your expertise, recommendations and opinions. The root to all of this is in the comments for a recent submission, here:
If you can recommend any recordings, brilliant. In the past I’ve had recordings on the equivalent of simple system flutes, recorders, whistles, very simple willow flutes (the kind with a basic fipple and a bark surround, like we made as children) and pipa, bagpipes. In that past we’d danced to some lovely playing and I’d learned some great tunes too. I’m not sure where things are in this regard now, but in the 60s and 70s there were quite a few recordings that featured, and I’m unsure of the spelling, a tuselflöjt? This was a version of the recorder, a fipple instrument made of wood.
I’ll drop Henrik Norbeck, a member, a note and see if he’ll give some time to contribute here and make some recommendations. I’d also love to chase up some of those old prized vinyl listens I gave away in my over generous youth…
Here’s some of Henrik Norbeck’s online content with respect to the subject, starting iwth his homepage ~
