Grönvalls Vals

  Grönvalls Vals is a delightful little waltz from Skåne.  It is named for a fiddler, Ola Grönvall, who used to play it.

Grönvall was a member of a very musical family.  His father and brothers played, as well as other relatives.

Ola Grönvall was born in 1846, and died in 1919.


I learned the tune from a Skåne fiddler named Bonde Bondesson in 1974.   He had a special technique for accenting certain notes, and I try to emulate his style when I play it.
