Björklunds Polketta is the unusual title for this tune. Everywhere else in Sweden this kind of tune is called polkett, or “little polka”.
The dance is similar to a polka, but using very small steps, and not involving rushing around the dance floor.
The tune comes to us through a fiddler named Ingemar Björklund, from Alingsås in the province of Västergötland. It is believed that he was a relation of the Björklund family of fiddlers prominent in Alingsås in the 19th century.
Here is a very nice video of a folkmusic group playing this tune. There are several fiddles, nyckelharpor, accordions, a guitar and bass guitar, and even a flute.
