Gånglåt från Äppelbo

Hommage Till en Spelman

This set is part of the following collections:

I used to play this tune in a folk group in the early 1990s. It's a popular Swedish tune originally from the playing of Karl Johan Karlström (1826–1917) (he was also known as Ärtbergs-Kalle). A "gånglät" is a kind of walking tune, and Äppelbo is an area in Dalarna, central Sweden.
