The Elf of Springtime


Bad luck has haunted a farm for 100 years. Apples rot. Cows give sour milk. What’s the reason? In this old Swedish folktale, a good-hearted farmer who’s just arrived is about to have the shock of his life when he finds out. Told by Odds Bodkin with voices, dripping vocal effects and music on Celtic harp.





In Swedish folklore, the Tomtin was a mischievous elf who could be good or bad, depending on one’s luck in dealing with it. Each farm had one, but mortals seldom saw them. They could help crops grow or wither depending on their mood and lived in secret caves underground. In this funny story with a happy ending, a farmer learns the drippy reason for his elf’s century-long annoyance.
