Jernbergslåtar

Gustav Jernberg, Herbert Jernberg, Anton Jernberg, Sven Ahlbäck

This record is a documentation of a living folk music tradition. It is music that has been kept alive for a long time by the Jernberg family from the province of Gästrikland.

A living tradition involves communication and playing together. It also involves natural change, flexible knowledge, and knowledge that is bound to individuals. These recordings represent three links in this tradition: Gustav Jernberg, his sons Anton and Herbert Jernberg, and Sven Ahlbäck, who is the pupil of Anton.


Gustav och Herbert Jernberg were recorded by Matts Arnberg on Sept 17, 1955, in Stockholm.

Anton Jernberg and Sven Ahlbäck were recorded on July 30, 1980, in Morkarla.
