Arto Järvelä (with Maria Kalaniemi) “II Mäläskä Ja Laiturin Äijä”
from Polska Differente (OArt Mouzak 1994) —the second half of the title means "old man of the dock"; the first half refers to a 19th century fiddler who was jailed for murder and then let go because he played this polska tune incessantly and the jailers went mad...
Tallari “Suomen lempein lintu (trad.)”
from Tallari (KILP 15) (Kansanmusiikki-Instituuti 1986) —this 35 year old LP features music by one of the early folk revival groups. Arto Järvelä played fiddle with them, but this cut features Kantele (a table harp) and Jouhikko (a primitive bowed instrument) at the start
Arto Järvelä & Kimmo Pohjonen “Gogo Tatu”
from Kuulas Hetki (Kansanmusiikki-Instituuti 1993) —this CD has a lot of student projects from the Sibelius Academy, where most of the musicians in the early part of this show went. Some of these projects were not directly related to Finnish folk music.
Laurie Hart, Stefhan Ohlström & Andrew VanNorstrand “Småland- Brudpolska av Jonas Börjesson”
from Polska in Uppland & Southern Sweden, Vol. 2 of Scandinavian Fiddle Tradition ((self) 2011)
Laurie Hart, Stefhan Ohlström & Andrew VanNorstrand “Södermanland- Polska efter Axel Axelsson”
from Polska in Uppland & Southern Sweden, Vol. 2 of Scandinavian Fiddle Tradition ((self) 2011) —both Småland and Södermanland are in southern Sweden
