    These are two Swedish folk dance tunes from the town of Malung in Dalarna County. "Böl Olles Schottis" is also sometimes known simpy as "Schottis från Malung". My source for these tunes is the wonderfull Spillefolk website:

    I got pointed towards these tunes earlier today by this thread on the Cafe: Link

    1898 Giuseppe Vinaccia mandolin
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar

    Happy New Year to all!

    Thanks, Ginny and Criss -- these are both fun tunes, and fairly easy to learn. For a somewhat grander version of the second tune, check out this Swedish TV broadcast by the "Folk All-In Band" (from 1:49):
