I learned this tune as a teenager and can’t remember the title of it- it’s remained a mystery to me for years. I will add it as soon as I have something!

Amazing, thank you Jeff!

Re: The 30 Year

Following Jeff’s note above (The 30 year jig (Trettioårsjiggen) - https://thesession.org/tunes/5304) folks might like to know that Väsen will be back in the UK in April next year. Remarkably excellent band! In particular, look out for a concert at the Ropetackle Centre, Shoreham by Sea, Sussex on Friday April 27th. You heard it here first!

Incidentally, another tune by their guitar player, Roger Tallroth, is Josefins Dopvals - which seems to have been taken up by just about every session in the country.

3rd tune is Leslie’s March, of course! Not Blue Bonnets…. Just found out by chance.
