Calle's Brudmarsch

Today's tune has been added because it's very, very special. It forms part of a set of three tunes that are written for the silverbasharpa - that's an old style nycklharpa, a gammalharpa. It's a drone instrument that all four strings are played at once. (Or at the least three of the strings). It was recorded onto the album using a standard modern three row chromatic nyckelharpa, but in the stop video below it's played on a silverbasharpa. We have a few of these Calle Svankvist tunes. We'll give more information on the source at some point in the future - there's a whole series to be had there!
