I've worked with hardingfele players using an old Hlavacek one row in E.  The Heligonka bass reeds really kick some kiester.

For more springar (albeit from West Norge) check out Embrik Bergaplass:

I learned a lot from him when I was living in Norway back in '82-'83.

What a joyful sound!
I'm a melodeon player. What's your excuse?
