Nice playing, great sounding box.   One of those tunes that makes me smile!

Eddy goes under the name of "Knert'n" and is a very popular Norwegian raucous-roller.  Here's a clip of his band "at full speed", as they say.  The tune is Evig Rus which might be translated as "endlessly intoxicated"...

Great tune. How do you pronounce Kjipp Kjapp?
Kyipp Kyapp or other?

It's somewhere between "ship-shap" and " chip-chap".  Start the sound as you would with an S but half-swallow it.  With an S the tongue is directly behind the front teeth, but with the kj the tp of the tongue is lowered and the sound is produced at the back of the mouth. 

How do you pronounce "Llangollen"?  It's a bit like the sound of the second pair of L's...

Norwegian "kj" is pronounced "ç" as in German "ich" (ɪç)

Lovely played. Very nice sounding box too, quite mellow, with rich basses. Cheers!

Nice tune, somehow it sounds vaguely Cajun to me.

And nice box too !  I like the different aesthetics (no red celluloid, etc..) - congratulations to the maker !!
