by Morten Alfred Høirup

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that my first collection of music is ready for publication here on June 4, 2022. We will hold a reception at Halkær Folk & Roots Festival in Himmerland, where I will also be a conference speaker during the days 2 - 5 June. The collection has been given the title Ingela's Waltz – 25 New Danish Folk Melodies, and contains 25 melodies that I have composed over the years, all with associated chords.

Five of the tunes are brand new and have never been performed let alone published before, the remaining 20 have been used for everything from documentaries, master classes, jam sessions, TV, radio, CD recordings, concerts, balls, festivals etc.

In addition to the 25 melodies, the book also contains a number of stories that take you behind the music and where you hear about where the inspiration to write this music comes from.

The books cost DKK 150 or €20 + shipping, and can be purchased either by writing to me at or via this link:
