Österbybruk tour

Our second spelträff with P-G started with tunes and fika, but then we added a special rainy-day driving tour of Österbybruk, featuring sites important to the Jernberg tradition. We stopped in to visit his house (and pick up a CD, and eat some freshly baked apple cake), but mostly we pointed things out through the car windows. The vagnshus that’s featured in numerous tune titles (because its midsummer celebrations were what kept the nyckelharpa tradition alive when it was old-fashioned and dying out elsewhere), Hasse Gille’s house, the ironworks factory gates that have Jernberg tunes dedicated to them,… we had a fun afternoon.
