OMG! 

I hit the mother lode of Swedish music! 

...almost went into shock when I found all these & I've spent the last couple hours sampling tunes! 

What a great site to get familiar with some Nordic music! 

 

Stefans Musik - Stefan Linden

 

Scrolling down the Home Page, I found an unbelievable amount of Swedish tunes from each Province/County!  There's sheet music pdf's AND mp3's, even andrastämma - which are duets arranged (along with more mp3's) from Stefan Linden, where he's added a 2nd voice to most of the tunes!  I believe it says he used Finale software.

I see all the common dance music styles, PLUS some I've never heard of! 

I found some Norwegian music in another section & all sorts of other pieces.... still looking! 

 

 

...even though the site is in Swedish, I'm having a growing urge to try & contact him - just to let him know how grateful I am for this!

Holy Cow!  Should be called the Nordic "The Session"
