Olle's Polska

Hello!
Olle's Polska was written by a student at Halsway 2015 for Olle Plahn. It's a lovely little polska and I taught it without him knowing what the tune was called or who it was for. We love Olle. <3
Enjoy!

Ut i Gröna Lunden

Hello!
Here is a tune from my archive, it's the first tune I always teach. This weekend is my teaching weekend at Halsway Manor in the Quantox hills in Somerset, so I thought it an appropriate tune to publish out in the blogosphere. It's written out as simply as possible. This week it's a fully taught tune for beginners. I hope the coding has worked ok! If there are any broken links let me know. Grabbing the addresses out from wordpress is always a little flakey!
Enjoy!
:)

The Knight / Riddaren


Hello!
This weeks #tunefriday is a polka, or if I'm in a Swedish sort of mood, a polkette. In this case the tune can pass as either. :) It's playable on Scottish pipes or Swedish pipes and of course the nyckelharpa. Enjoy!
