Music from my Country, Sweden

Nisse Nordström spelar nyckelharpa

And "nyckelharpa" is the instrument, a bit like a crossbreed between violin and piano .../HGL

(Since he is from Uppland and my ma from Sörmland - the regions North and South of Stockholm - we speak about the same dialect, although I spent most of my life in Malmö).

Update: More Nyckelharpa.

However, with this one, the composer could be an anonymous person who already died./HGL

I am adding another one to the post.

It is from "Närke" / older Nerike / Latin Nericia, where St Bridget was from.
