ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1. HOPPVALS IN THE TRADITION OF HENNING INGEBRIGTSVOLD
arr.: Torill Aasegg
This hoppvals (a kind of polka) is known in many variations from several areas.We have chosen a variation from the valley Hessdalen, after Jens Vårhus (1910–1995), who learned the tune from Henning Ingebrigtsvold (1892–1981). (aeae)

2. WALTZ BY KLAS BØLE
arr.: John Ole Morken
Klas Henriksen Bøle (1815–1890) was a legendary musician in the Fosen area. Born in Kvikne in Hedmark, he moved to Åfjord as a young boy. After moving around several places, he settled at Bøle in Flatanger. We learned this waltz from Knut
Olav Aasegg (b.1946) from Byneset, who is one of our members. He learned the tune from Jakob Vingsand (1901–1968). The fiddlers play this waltz alone. (adae)

3. “SAMVITTIGHETEN DØMMER” IN THE TRADITION OF PER MOSAND
arr.: Ronny Kjøsen
Our singer, Ingrid Storlimo (b. 1982), is accompanied by Ronny Kjøsen (b. 1975) on the pump organ. For many years Ingrid has done a great job to make known old vocal music from our area. They present this little known song “The conscience judges”, after Per Mosand (1925–1982) from Støren.
"The conscience judges, it cries and it weeps
Now it has awakened what used to be asleep
But what shall one say when God divides the wages
We have deserved to be driven away
Be a graceful God to me
Dress me up as Thy bride
Before Thy trial to stand
With a glorified envelope."

4. POLSDANS BY MARTIN AUNE
arr.: John Ole Morken
This tune is in the tradition of Martin Aune (1912–1996), a very active fiddler from Lundamo. He came from a musical family, in which his father John (John Monsen Aune from Hessdalen, 1876–1954) and several of his siblings played, and his mother
Kari (1875–1967) had an outstanding voice. (aeae)

5. RENGLENDER BY HOLRØNNINGEN
arr.: John Ole Morken and Ingrid Storlimo
Holrønningen (Ole Pedersen Røttum, b. 1810) was a fiddler from Rognes. Our source is Ståffå Rogstad (1886–1943) from Støren. Here the whole group plays, includeing pump organ. (gdae)

6.WALTZ IN THE TRADITION OF OLE NILSEN BREKKAN
Ole Brekkan (1827–1898) was called Brekkgut’n (the boy from Brekkan). He was born in Hemne, but settled in Leinstrand. He was a fiddler with very good technical skills, as we can hear from his tunes. This waltz in B flat is performed by Sturla Eide (b. 1975) from Fannrem. For many years he has been a profiled fiddler and one of very few traditional fiddlers in the area of Orkdal. Sturla has been a member of Søndre Trondhjem’s since its beginning. (gdae)

7. SULHUSPOLS IN THE TRADITION OF EILERT SUNDT
arr.: John Ole Morken
This pols is also known as Aursundleken (“the Aursund tune”). In 1925 Anders Haugen wrote in the newspaper Fjell-ljom that this tune was one of the favourite polses of the well-known Røros fiddler, Sulhusgubben – Ole Henriksen Sulhus (1811–1897). Originally there was a second part in this tune that was composed mostly of rhythmical effects without melody. Sulhusgubben therefore made a new second part, the one we play today. This variation is in the tradition of the fiddler Eilert Sundt (b. 1917) from Ålen, who learned it from his brother John Sundt (1903–1974) and neighbour Kristen Nesgård (1806–1852). (adae)

8. “BOKKIN STO I BRUNNA” IN THE TRADITION OF LUCIE ROGSTAD
Lucie Rogstad (1887–1972), maiden name Nygård, was born at Ørlandet, but moved to Støren and got married. Here Ingrid Storlimo sings a little song, “The ram stood in the well”, learned from writings by Lucie.
"The ram stood in the well, had a leaf in his mouth
Dear bird, lend me your wing!
How far should we fly?
Over at Østerdalen
Where the onion grows, where the cuckoo sings,
Where the swallow rests high in the pine tree.
Small boys play ball, drive crazily just for a laugh
With a small beautiful ladybird."

9.WALTZ IN THE TRADITION OF MARTIN EGGEN
arr.: Solan Renolen
Peder Arntsen Horgmo (1873–1947) learned this tune from one of the mythical little people living in the hills, when he walked across the bog Finnmyra in Lundamo. Martin Eggen (1915–1996) learned it from Peder. Our source is the fiddler Solan Renolen (b. 1918), originally from Ålen, but today living at Lundamo. (gdae)

10. HALLING IN THE TRADITION OF STÅFFÅ ROGSTAD
arr.: John Ole Morken and Ronny Kjøsen
There aren’t many halling tunes in our area, so this is a rarity. We found this tune in a notebook that belonged to the fiddler Ståffå Rogstad (1886–1943) from Støren. It is performed by the group RIM. (gdae)

11. “STILLE LYKKE” MAZURKA IN THE TRADITION OF BJARNE RENOLEN
arr.: Bjarne Renolen and Ronny Kjøsen
This mazurka is called “Silent happiness”. It’s one of few mazurka tunes in our area, and the composer is unknown. Our version comes from the fiddler Anders Grønli (1930–2004) from Ålen. The tune is arranged to give an experience of silent happiness, and begins with piano and keyed fiddle, and then more and more instruments join in. (gdae)

12. RENGLENDER FROM BJØRGEN IN THE TRADITION OF REIDAR JOHNSEN
arr.: Sturla Eide
Reidar Johnsen (1909–1995) was an important fiddler from Singsås. He wrote down this tune after Bernt Hovstad (1890–1977) from Bjørgen. The tune is in a minor key, which is uncommon in our area. (adae)

13. “LANGT OPPI LIEN” IN THE TRADITION OF JON SMEMO
The traditional lullaby “Far up the hillside” from Ålen appears in many variations. Ingrid Stolimo learned this one directly from Jon Smemo (b. 1925).
"Far up the hillside, there go the cows.
Down on the path the boy is coming and he is calling nicely
Stjernkoll and Krone, wouldn’t you come home tonight?
Up on the stone the goat jumped so neatly
Upon the big stone the billy-goat wondered
Should I try to gore him?
But then the boy took the ox horn and called so nicely
That the billy-goat was left standing thoughtfully."

14. “UT FRA FALSTAD”, POLS BY JAKOB A. VINGSAND
Jakob Aksel Vingsand (1901–1968) was a prominent fiddler, originally from Osen on the Fosen Peninsula, who lived in Heimdal for many years. He had a huge collection of traditional music from his home area and also composed many tunes. This pols was written while he was a prisoner at the Falstad camp, near Levanger, during the Second World War. The tune “Out of Falstad”, is performed by Torill Aasegg (b.1973) from Heimdal, who found it in Vingsand’s own collection. She has done a great effort in searching for unknown traditional music from Sør-Trøndelag, particularly from the coastal areas. (adae)

15. GALOPP IN THE TRADITION OF OLE ENLID
arr.: John Ole Morken
This tune is known in several areas, and is mainly the same polka known as “Schlummerpolka” in Germany/Austria and “Slummerpolka” in Denmark. Our version comes from Budalen, in the tradition of Ole Enlid (1877–1967). (gdae)

16. “DANSE POLKA” IN THE TRADITION OF STÅFFÅ ROGSTAD
Ingrid Storlimo sings a short song after Ståffå Rogstad from Støren, written down by Torleif Skjøtskift (1881–1955). The text is untranslatable…
"Danse polka, slusk i honka
Hele væla rundinn om
Eli Dala, Mali Bakka,
Kukkerara, Gunhild-Jo"

17. “SOMMERNATT PÅ TROMSØ”, WALTZ BY OLE NILSEN BREKKAN
arr.: Ronny Kjøsen
This beautiful waltz, “Summer night on Tromsø”, by Ole Nilsen Brekkan (1827–1898) is played by “Over Stok og Steen”, a well-known and outstanding group. Three of the group have been members of Søndre Trondhjem’s since it was formed. (gdae)

18. “I KOLERATIDEN” IN THE TRADITION OF LUCIE ROGSTAD
arr.: Ronny Kjøsen
Ingrid Storlimo and Ronny Kjøsen perform “In the time of the cholera”, a short song after Lucie Rogstad from Støren.
"In the time of the cholera six men went out to bury a seemingly dead man.
In the time of the cholera six men went out to bury a seemingly dead man.
Tra-la-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la-la-la!

19. “JULDANSEN”, POLS IN THE TRADITION OF ANDERS JØRGENSEN REITAN
“The Christmas Dance” is an old holiday tune. Noted on old sheets of music, we can read that this was a tune of Henning Trøen (1834–1919) from Brekken. The fiddles perform a variant after Anders Jørgensen Reitan (1826–1872) from Ålen, who was a prominent figure in the folk-music life of Trøndelag. (adae)

20. BRURMARSJ FROM MELHUS IN THE TRADITION OF SIGRID SØDAHL
arr.: Arild Hoksnes and John Ole Morken
This pearl of a wedding march is in the tradition of “Vassfjelljenta”, Sigrid Emelie Sødahl (b. 1918). She is from Melhus and plays the accordion. Arild Hoksnes (b. 1956), one of our members, taught us this lovely march. In this arrangement we start
with the keyed fiddle and accordion, then more instruments join in. (gdae)


SØNDRE TRONDHJEMS SPELLMANNSLAG is a traditional music group from Norway, and was started in August 1994. The name derives from Søndre Trondhjems Amt, the name of Sør-Trøndelag county until 1918. Our repertoire originates from the area south of Trondheim, central Norway, mainly from Gauldal, Budal, Singsås, Holtålen, Soknedal and Fosen, with a focus on pols. Pols is a very potent dance. We emphasise dance appeal in our music, and we arrange the music both traditionally and innovatively.

Our main instrument is the fiddle, but we also use accordion, diatonic accordion, flute, clarinet, Swedish keyed fiddle, pump organ, double bass and guitar. Our members come from many places in Norway, but we all gather in the music from
Sør-Trøndelag at our weekly rehearsals.

We work with documentation of local traditions and recruiting young musicians. Søndre Trondhjems Spellmannslag participates frequently in competitions, and among our results we can mention: no 3 in the Norwegian championship 2005 and winner of the local championship in Trøndelag 2004, 2005 and 2006. Our soloists and smaller groups also compete with good results. We have organised several local and national competitions and festivals.

THE FOLLOWING MEMBERS PARTICIPATE ON THIS RECORDING:
John Ole Morken (fiddle – conductor), Annar Volløyhaug (fiddle), Anders Marstrander (fiddle and viola), Arild Hoksnes (fiddle), Elisabet Midtli (fiddle), Håkon Sagen (fiddle), Hans Brede (fiddle), Hilde Aspås (fiddle), Ingrid Storlimo (fiddle and vocal), Jo Einar Tobias Sterten Jansen (fiddle), Jonas Hoksnes (fiddle), Jori Skinderhaug (fiddle), Knut Olav Aasegg (fiddle), Lars Jellum (fiddle), Marit Skinderhaug (fiddle), Marit Stranden (fiddle), Monica Fossum (fiddle), Morten Often (fiddle), Randi Magda Morken (fiddle), Siri Garli Dragset (fiddle), Torill Aasegg (fiddle and Swedish keyed fiddle), Christin Sleppen (clarinet), Ronny
Kjøsen (piano, pump organ and accordion), Anders Homb (diatonic accordion), Tor Erik Jenstad (accordion), Rolf Kristian Holte (guitar), Harald Røstad (double bass)

Some of our members are soloists and participate in smaller groups that play traditional music from our area. On this recording the following members contribute: Ingrid Storlimo, vocal, Torill Aasegg, fiddle and Sturla Eide, fiddle. Two smaller groups also participate: “rim” consists of Ingrid Storlimo, Hildegunn Djupdal and John Ole Morken on fiddles, Anders Prytz accordion, Rolf Kristian Holte guitar and Olav Mjelva double bass. In “Over Stok og Steen” Thomas Lomundal plays the fiddle, Thomas Nilssen and Ronny Kjøsen accordion,Morten Brattås guitar and Frode Slupphaug double bass. Most of these group members are also members of Søndre.
