This ain’t Irish. Jeremy should give you a telling-off. Nor does it SOUND Irish. Tut.

Re: Mysoxen

It’s clearly Swedish. The name of the tune might to refer to a hotell named Mysoxen, which lies in a little Swedish town called Sveg in the Härjedalen region of the county Jämtland. The band’s name is SVER and you can hear more of their beautiful Swedish/Nordisk music here: https://www.sverfolk.com/en/

Well, the lead melody is played on a Norwegian Hardanger fela and the rhythm is that of a Norwegian halling…A small herd of the Ovibos moschatus wandered into Sweden from the Dovre mountain range in Norway (close to where I have many of my roots). So, the tune, too, has started to roam.
