Salty dog rag

This week’s Tobotorsdag concert featured playing by the Tierps spelmanslag, and sometimes also dancing by Strömbergs folkdansgille. I took a couple of quickie little movies I thought y’all might be interested to see:

  • The salty dog rag — showing its roots as a schottis variant. The tune we know for it was nowhere to be found; they say they dance it to any old schottis melody.
  • Hambo från Södertälje — A cute hambo-mixer variant.
  • Polkett mixer — when I was in grade school, this was one of the dances my mom taught to groups of kids. We called it patty-cake polka. If this group had a name for it, I didn’t find out about that.
