Subject: Fele gubbeni (Swedish tune)
From: Jack Campin

At a Swedish session yesterday somebody played a lovely tune called "Fele gubbeni" (the old man's fiddle) with an interesting backstory - the old man was found living alone in a house after his parents had both died, almost unable to communicate verbally but able to play that tune on his fiddle.

I can't find any trace of it on the web, the player has gone back to England and I can't make it back to that session for a while. Anyone here know it? Does it have another name?

Do you know who the fiddler was at the session yesterday? And where was the session (presumably not in England? Was it in Sweden? Maybe Richard Mellish can help.

I'm Swedish, but I'm very sorry to say I've never heard of this tune. However, I suggest you drop the "i" at the end of the title. "Gubben" = "the old man".

The name means nothing to me, but I have just emailed Carol Turner asking her to look at this thread.

That's it! Thank you!

Once we have the correct name, Google is your friend. Dots are here.

Enjoyed the comment on FolkWiki, on where the tune was found:
"Far away as hell, up in the north." (Dorotea, Lappland)

Nice! I also enjoyed listening to other Scandinavian music which appeared on my screen when I followed Crowhugger's link.
