Ek Lunda

A very well known Swedish polska, apparently as overplayed in many sessions there as Banshee or Spootiskerry is in Scotland.

Re: Ek Lunda

A tune by Vikste-Lasse (Johan Leonard Larsson 1897 − 1983) a fiddler from Eklunda in Uppland, Sweden. He was a student of Hjort Anders Olsson from whom he learned tunes from Bingsjö. He also composed tunes, the best known of which are the three Eklunda Polskas.

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gE6j-Zp323w for a version of this one by the remarkable trio Väsen


Polskas are generally notated in 3/4 time.

Re: Ek Lunda

Regardless of polkas being generally notated in 3/4 time, this one is actually written in 3/4 time. Wgphat is this obsession with folk stating a tune is three - two? It is cropping up forever!

Eklunda Polska #3, X:2

This tune is really fun to play on the concertina. I’ve added in the double-stops that I’ve heard fiddlers play in the second part. The best part of the tune for me in the 5th bar of the second part where the harmony changes to Em, that one bass note lifts the tune to whole new level.
