Tune i ugen for Januar 9, 2012

Danish for Tune of the Week.
From one of my all-time favorite CDs.

Gunner Friis, Kalejdoskop
(click here to visit CD Roots catalog)

This CD was put together in honor of Gunner Friis‘ 60th birthday in 2005. He is a highly-respected dance fiddle in Denmark. This wedding march, 1 of 2 in a medley, was learned from Jens Frederiksen, who I assume was a fiddler from the previous generation.
