Lars Gullin

Born:

Lars Gullin was born May 4, 1928, on the island of Gotland, off the Swedish east coast. Legend say he could read music before he learned to read Swedish. His first instrument was an accordion of the simplest kind. A few years later it was exchanged for a larger one with piano keys, and at the age of five he composed simple polkas. He actually won an accordion contest, still a juvenile. At the age of nine or ten he led his own little band, playing in local vaudevilles. The "book" consisted of tunes like After You've Gone and Tiger Rag, no doubt learned from Sonora 78s with accordionist Nisse Lind. At 13 Lars joined the military band in Visby, the main city on the island, as a clarinet player
