Marten Haggs

A lovely waltz that I got from my old teacher Noel Geeson. Again I believe it is from Sweden originally.

I’m thinking the title might refer to Mårten Hägg (pronunciation near to "Morten Hegg").
He was a fiddler from Skåne in South Sweden (Österlen area). I believe he might have played the clog fiddle (träskofiol) as well as the usual fiddle.
It would fit, as the tune sounds like a Skåne tune - similar to a lot of Danish tunes.
I’m adding the title, anyway.
There seems to be a few glitches in the notation.
