Brännvinslåt

Traditional

 

Dave Kaynor (again) brought this tune to this country.  It's from the playing of Tång Gudmond from the town of Rättvik, Sweden, a town famous for hundreds of good tunes made there.  It's a VISA (air, ballad) so it might have had words.  The name means Burning wine-tune or Brandy Tune.  (GB)

 

I learned it from a tape of music at Indian Neck sent to me by Drew Smith.  We played it quite some time before learning its name and origin.  (ET)

 

 

This tune is recorded on the album Language of the Heart
