A TRIANGLE FROM KRAGELUND

Midtjyske Tæpper - Anne Mette Larsen - Noder

ANDERS ”TOP” ANDERSEN

What is a triangle doing in a square book about well-crafted blankets…?

(It is always possible that it has lost its bearings…) but it does provide an apt little soundscape to accompany the yellowing archival photos.

Anders “Top” Andersen (1855 – 1953) from Kragelund in Mid-Jutland may have played at dances held for the paper-production workers at Klostermølle, guests at the spa bath facility, or the freshly-bathed customers from the bathhouse…though he never did make it to Tinnet Krat.

The world was, after all, much larger back then.

Midtjyske Tæpper - Anne Mette Larsen - Maja Kjær Jacobsen

Today, Anders ‘Top’ Andersen’s music is carried forward by performer Maja Kjær Jacobsen.

’Lulu’ in 1904 or earlier. Back when a motorboat route passed from Alken Harbour to Klostermølle carrying wood one way and paper pulp the other.
