Sporting winter.

20180217 (132K)

Charming weather. Approximatle round zero degrees. No wind, and a little touch of sunshine.
Sporting-week begins! The skis is waiting outside the garage, and the snow enough thick for a trip.
Toby and Sonic like this and running a lot more.

Goose

The Goose. Tonight I learned something new. The Birchmarch, is far away
from common tunes in folkmusic. What kind of tunes could be played of everone
in this gengre? Is it only Appleliving,(äppelbo) Fieldvillage,(gärdebylåten)
and Emma on top three?
Is there anyone more?
I think this would be at new project for me to solve out this year.

Hanging with the Goose again. There is lot more space at the springseasons to grab the guitar.

Hagby

One afternoon a piece of paper appeared in the mailbox about playing in Hagby, once a mounth.
I take the chance to go there, it´s not far away from here. About twenty people, mostly not knowing.
More common tunes, and less traditional folk. Why not? It is always nice to learn some new.
A accordion-player told us a story about August Borg. He took the fourth place i the folkmusic-competition
in 1909, with the tune "Valbopolskan" Unfortunelty I missed to record it.
Thats one excuse to visit this place next time.

Fiddlers trap

Training on fiddlers trap. A tune from Väsen.

Tobostämman

This spelmansstämma requires two more
things except instruments
1. Indoorshoes.
2. A hanger for clothes.

If you have it, just enter and search for a
room with good players. This time we found
an empty room! Just for two tunes for
ourselves. :-)
Tierps Låtverkstad joined us pretty soon.
Nice to meet some younger players.
The leader was a classical-school
and could a lot of secondtunes in
a new shape.

Just before leaving for this time
we have to play some tunes in the
corridor, with best friend, secondtuneswitcher.
In this picture very concentrate people.

A lot of waltzes.

20180201 (200K)

Training new Goose-waltzes. "well, well, well, where is my fiddle" and "I have never been to cinema"
Well thats not the correct name of it. It is "waltz number 57 or number 2." Little boring.
The new names are more funny, and you can sing it.

Clever

Pheasant is a clever bird. Making sign in the snow to show the wrong way.

Real winter

Snowy landscape and the fog put the world
into a fantasy universe. It feels like a tune
could appear from the sky in any moment.

And this is what happends. In the warm house
just in front of the fireplace, some new melody
turn up. Folk? Well could be with som imagination






Winterstämma, Järfälla

20180120_1 (229K)

Riktigt varm och god vinterstämma. Fullt med folk och fart på dansgolvet. Dragplåster i år är Hazelius/Hedin. Mycket bättre här i Järfälla än i Kalhäll. Skolor är ju perfekt att ha stämmor i. Det är visserligen hög ljudnivå, men man kan tränga in sig i olika hörn och få vara med om finstämd musik.
I år hamnade vi i en korridor, tillsammans med LoT, och gammelharpor. Det blev en hel del bysskallelåtar under minst ett par timmars tid.
Efter fikat så hittade vi nya spelkompisar med hjälp av secondtuneswitcher och fick en härlig avslutning, med Blidström. Den här inomhusstämman är en höjdare.

Tjugunda knut-spel

20180113 (224K)

Björklinge. Bra tryck i spelet, och många som var sugna på att spela så här i mellandagarna.
Viksta har lagt ner och vi i Björklinge har tagit över.

Hanunda

Årets första spel. Färden bär till Hanunda i
norduppland hos HappyK. Härligt spel i varm miljö
och god mat. Vi blandar med nya och gamla låtar.
En julaftonsvals som jag aldrig hört förut var
extra intressant. Ja,var det en vals? Det är så
himla svårt att skilja utvad det är för låtar
när man är koncentrerad på alla toner som kommer.
