After last years’ August (2019) MFC I had the pleasure of visiting David Kaynor at his family home in Maine. David had been a special surprise guest at camp and while he was in Maine we shared tunes on his front porch. We played mostly Swedish tunes, and this is a beautiful one from Dave I recorded. I hope you enjoy. Sheet music is available on the website: Skänklek efter Lars He’en

A note from Doug:
This is a dance tune we played for many years, along with The Dominion Reel. It works great and is an intermediate level classic. This tune was first collected by Smokey Mckeen, Greg Boardman, John Gawler, and Bob Childs around 1976 when visiting maritime folklorist -tune collector Gale Huntington in Cape Cod. He played it for them on a button accordion.
I think it is on the OGG Folkways recording from 1978. — Douglas Protsik
