från Mockfjärd and the Swedish Walking Jig Gånglåt från Mockfjärd
is a Swedish walking tune made popular by the playing of Anders
Frisell in Sweden and by David Kaynor in the US. Gånglåt are
walking tunes and this one is from Mockfjärd,
a little village in the area of Dalarna in Sweden.
I’ve been playing this tune for years because it is just right. The
mp3 below is Sam Zygmuntowicz on fiddle and me on Anglo concertina
playing our version of the original tune.

The other day I was fooling around with it and out came this very
nice jig. Here is us playing the jig and segueing into our
playing the same at a contra dance here in New York City.
