An interesting thing is when I try to play along with the fiddler here

Here's my recording of Trollspolska. I play it as a bodapolska which is the traditional way it's played and danced in Sweden. The hambo version seems to have come out of New England and from there crossed back to Sweden.

That's really marvelous. I play Anglo, but those harmonies are enough to give a fellow English envy.
