First session with the Trad Academy’s Scandinavian Music Course
Gamble Mörti was first recorded by the singer Karl Lithberg for the Swedish Radio in 1956, but I learnt it from a CD with Gunnfjaun’s Kapell, a influential folk group focusing on the music of Gotland. Gunnfjaun’s also recorded vevlirepolskan, which has become a popular tune on the Swedish folk scene.
Gamble Mörti twice through slowly:
Harmony part (slightly different from the session version, sorry!):
