Anyone know where I can get a copy of Ben Paley's book "Swedish Fiddle Music"? The accompanying cassette is available for download:

https://benpaley-fiddle.bandcamp.com/album/swedish-fiddle-music-an-anthology

but he's been promising to reprint the book for years and nothing's happened. Second-hand copies are impossible to find (not just expensive: impossible). Email enquiries are ignored.

If you can't find Ben's book, you could try this - Rowan Piggott - Swedish Fiddle Tunes

There is a certain amount of stuff on YouTube - Polska efter Pål Karl Persson

I was taking a load of rubbish to the dump a couple of years and I found about half a dozen folk tune books in a skip and I quickly retrieved them. One was the book in question in this thread. I gave it to the fiddler in our band, a bloke called Ben Paley.

Hello,

First of all, I'd like to apologise if I missed anyone's emails — I've never ignored one on purpose, sorry @Jack Campin!

So, finally, I've got the book back out there, with some very small revisions. It's available at Lulu.com at either of these links:

Sorry it took so long. It's lovely to know that people are still interested after all these years!

Finally, Rowan's book is great, I definitely recommend it. Lots of lovely tunes.

Cheers,
Ben

I will have to check into getting this. Ben.. If you are reading this I am sad to say that the videos of Tom Paley that I was hoping to digitize are among the many things destroyed by fire last month.
