Gille

– 34 tracks – 73'53"

Hasse Gille and Kurt Södergren both live in that centre for nyckelharpa playing, Österbybruk in northern Uppland. They have both played the nyckelharpa since the beginning of the 70's, and are both riksspelmän. Hasse also became world champion on the older type of nyckelharpa in 1992. This recording mostly consists of tunes from Uppland, played as duets and solos, on both the modern nyckelharpa, and the older types kontrabasharpa and silverbasharpa. "På vårat vis" means "in our way", and this album gives a good example of Hasse's and Kurt's personal way of interpreting the tunes.
