That sure beats the crap out of "greensleeves", I don't like English folk music, but if it sounded like that I would be a massive fan. I might even take up Morris dancing,well maybe that would be a step too far. Keep them coming Hakan your videos are always worth listening to.

I was waiting until I worked out what this reminded me of, but I can’t do any better than ‘house of the rising sun’, so maybe that’s all it is and any similarities are probably only my imagination ie the differences are far greater than the similarities. Something in the cadence perhaps. It’s interesting to hear folk from Northern Europe. Good work as ever, Hawk!
The swedish troubadour who wrote this song, Cornelis Vreeswijk, was born in Netherlands and took bits and pieces from their song tradition and also from french songs and poetry. He liked Josh White and Leadbelly and also borrowed from south american samba music.
Happy New Year!
