I hope I don’t annoy anyone if sometimes I post some not-irish tunes.

None-irish tunes.

no problem for me - thanks

Such a tune cannot annoy anybody!

The tune

Where does this tune come from?

Posted by .

Sweden, and more mormally transcribed as M: 3/4…

‘mormally’ should have read ‘normally’, but you knew that, eh? ;-)

However, I do realize the more contemporary take on this and that it is not necessarily intended for the dance… So, mixed meter, etc., what does it matter how you choose to write it out… :-/

The composer

Hello Gian,

My name is Aryeh Frankfurter and I am writing from California, USA.

Thank you for posting the music to a Swedish tune "Digerpolskan." I wanted to learn this tune and your music helped me out a lot!

However, I wanted to let you know that this tune was composed by a very well Swedish musician named Göran Freddy Frederikson - a cittern player who is still alive and well and lives in Askersund, Sweden.
He was most well known for playing with a group named Blå Bergens Borduner in the 1990s. In fact, you can find him on Facebook!

Freddy is an acquaintance of mine and a very nice fellow. I do not think he would mind that the music is being published via "The Session" website. However, I think it is important that he should be given credit for writing the tune. Would you please amend your posting to give him credit? He deserves it - especially since it is such a great tune.

Thank you kindly,

Aryeh Frankfurter

At last, thanks to thesession member "Lionharp", I know the name of the composer of that beautifull tune. His name is Göran Freddy Frederikson - a cittern player who is still alive and well and lives in Askersund, Sweden.
Thanks Lionharp, and thanks to your friend Göran for composing such a good tune.
