Subject: Recognize this tune?
From: Mandeville

The linked tune is a "schottis" from Älvdalen, Sweden. It´s recorded in Sweden in 1955. Rumours are that the very same tune is played as a reel in Canada, Prince Edward Island to be exact. Or is it a reel from Scotland finding its way to Sweden?

I believe I´ve heard it somewhere in northern New England many years ago.

Anyone out there who can help me out?

Nice tune. Apart from the first phrase being "I'm a little Teapot" no idea.


There I've spoilt it for everyone now.

It has a distant similarity to "Arkansas Traveller" but it certainly isn't just a variant of that. I don't recognize it as anything from Scotland.

"Arkansas Traveller" isn´t such a bad idea after all. A Swedish fiddler (Gyris Anders) lived in Chicago at the time of the great fire. He composed a waltz "The Chicago Waltz" and brought it back home to Älvdalen when he moved back to Sweden so it´s not too unthinkable he may have heard some tune like A.T and shaped it in his own way.

Curious as I am I´ll will continue the search.

All ideas are welcome!
