Title: Theme of the Month for September 2018: Tunes with Names
Post by: Clive Williams on September 01, 2018, 11:07:32 AM
A return for this nice open theme; any tune with a name in the name, if you get my drift. Now you've all had your holidays, let's get back to it and see what stuff you can come up with :-)

Does this include tunes that are described by the person (presumably) collected from or written by, such as Tom Tolley's Hornpipe and William Andrew's Sailor's Hornpipe?

I think so: if there's anything that looks like a proper name in the title I'd say it's fair game.

'The Crags of Stanley Ghyll' by Adam Garland which fortuitously arrived in my inbox last week. A 64 bar tune, I have put the last two parts together so that it is played as a 48 bar jig. An out-take is included at 1:45 at a slightly slower pace which may be more descriptive. Titled for the crags, but I also hear the waterfall.

Maybe a bit of a cheat, as this track was recorded some time ago, but I thought I'd chuck it in as Jimmy Allen had fared so badly in the TOTM poll! This recording has mixed memories for me, as the drummer and keyboard player have both passed away (though both younger than me), the fiddle player now lives in New Jersey and I'm settled in Cyprus.  Can't get much further separated than that!

I'll try and get a proper contribution recorded by way of atonement......

I absolutely love that  ;D
For making the most of what I've heard described as "the most boring tune in the world", that was heroic!
I'm glad I listened right to the end, too.

Fabulous. Reminds of the only time I was privileged to see Willie Taylor play at a workshop during Cleethorpes Folk Festival (?late 70's early 80's) when he started playing Jimmy Allen. I remember thinking 'oh no how naff' but by the end of countless harmonies I was transfixed.
Great playing.

Thank you both - your comments mean a lot. The drummer in that band had worked in swing big bands before joining us, and the fiddle player had a pretty solid jazz background, so it seemed a natural way to put a bit of life into what is frankly a very ordinary tune (sorry George!)

I think Jimmy Allen is a really good tune; am I odd?

Anyway, here's my 'tune with a name'; Valse efter Tor Lohne - https://youtu.be/XJZVwl6Iu4M

I *assume* Tor Lohne is a name; there's no place called that on Google Maps (yes, I looked), and Facebook lists several people with that name, although I can be fairly confident none of them wrote this :-) This is, I *think*, a trad Norwegian tune (Anahata's site has ABC that says trad Danish) and was played by Chris Wood and Andy Cutting in the 90's. Other than a version by Phillip Henry and Lancastrian band from a *long* time ago Chouchenn, it seems oddly unrecorded by anyone else. Perhaps because Chris and Andy's version was so good. Anyway, I've tried before to come up with a melodeon based version of it that sounds convincing, and failed badly - thought I'd try again, and here's the result.

Played on a Van der Aa Compact III in G/C.

If you want to see Chris and Andy's version, played on a C/F I think, here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SGFXWLQ6Uo - sublime.

Cheers,

Clive

It is somebody's name: my source of the tune told me "Tor" is alternative spelling for "Thor". I don't know where she got it from (though CW & AC's recording would be a good guess)

This does does not surprise me much  (:)
You picked up some quite jazzy style from them yourself, or maybe you always play like that...

I've been meaning to learn this for a while, and it's got a name in it...
Hardings Folly's Hornpipe (https://youtu.be/3h9US8349ls) from the William Mittell book.
And inspired by Martin Ellison's terrific version of same elsewhere on YouTube, from which I pinched the idea of the bass runs.

About 5 years ago McGrooger posted a video of "Dick's Maggot" that he pronounced the "trickiest" tune he had learned so far.  I was quite taken with both his playing and his pronouncement, and I've been messing with it ever since.

I was touched to learn that Pascal Rubens' Gooik 2018 workshop gave my name to her newest mazurka. Pascal often brings a composition and asks the class to name it. I can claim some success in the naming of her other tunes but I had nothing to do with this one. I was enjoying a different session taught by Guus Herremans.

It is presumptious but I simply can't resist posting it for Tunes with a Name: Mazurka for the fantastic mister Doc Jones

What an honour and a nice piece, very well played as usual, fantastic mister Doc Jones !

I feel a bit of a trend starting, as fantastic mister Roland Carson has had a piece written for him by Alessandro Pepino.

I can’t find it on YouTube, although I am sure I have heard Roland playing it. Maybe it has been deleted. But here is a link to Alessandro’s latest CD, with his band L’Escargot, you can see it is there on the track list. I don’t have the disc, maybe I should get it.

Thanks, Mr. McG.  I've really enjoyed it.

Still one of my favourite 3/2 tunes but I'm beggared if I can tap my foot 3 to the bar in the 'A' part of the music when the first note of the bar is a crotchet and thus less than a full beat.  Well played that man!

I believe your spell check may have modulated last name Pipino to  Pepino, thereby awarding Allessandro a PhD in chemistry but severely diminishing his diato skills. ;)

It's not a song that I've had to learn for this ThotM but it still counts in my book as I've never recorded it before. (:)

It is a song that I've written for our cat named Albina. She had a wild life and, as far as we know, she had more than 6 homes before she arrived at our place. We got her when she was 6 years old and now she's 12. She has a very shy character and basically had to relearn how to be herself, play and "be a cat" again.

As always there are some hickups here and there, but I don't have the patience at the moment to re-record it. Maybe at a later time. Have fun listening to it.  :||:

https://soundcloud.com/laubblaeser/albina-take-1

Futhermore, I'm currently learning a completely new song as well, it's called Bruce (Recordings: Live (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOL3jxZZ72Y) and Studio (https://open.spotify.com/track/03dEG6yM84ITNDm1tsU7Wd)). The problem with it is that it is swedish (wild rhythms), that it is normally played by a trio (Nyckelharpa, Cello, and Mandolin), and that there is no sheet music of the song meaning that I have to learn it by ear. Complicated enough, isn't it? Started yesterday evening, got the basics down already. Will try to post in the next few days. Lots of practice needed still...

"I'm always surprised by the number of people who vote for a tune but don't post anything."

Perhaps the answer to your wonderings is shown in the following youtube?

Here's a "name" tune, which the above quoted posting by McGrooger shamed me into playing and recording. The name of the tune is Gwalchmai, it's a hymn tune, and if you want to sing along it's number 23 in the M.H.B. Don't worry about the mis-timing of notes or the other glitches; they're all part of my current playing style!

(Gwalchmai ap Gwyar becomes in the French Romances Gawain, having first been Latinized into Walwanus and Walweyn.)

Enough! "A Tune from the Terrace", here it is:

I have been somewhat inactive lately - partially due to the fact that a corroded joint on my hot water cylinder caused it to empty through my ceiling.After much negotiation with insurance company, builders, plumbers and painters at last things are getting repaired. Recorded these whilst waiting for the plaster to dry. Hope you like the echo effect!
Two tunes, two names Mopsi Don (or the Welsh jig, Mopsy's tune) and Tom Jones. Learnt after Dave Ball played them at our local session in Nantwich.

Mopsy Don; (Approximately) https://www.folktunefinder.com/tunes/109458
Tom Jones; https://www.folktunefinder.com/tunes/197202

Not sure how I'd handle not having the high G# for Tom Jones though. The tune's namesake is radically more popular online! Anyway, I can say that I'm into these tunes and will give them a shot, so, you (hopefully) have at least turned one person onto them!

Here's Mopsi Dôn (see attached) transcribed from the original source in 'Blodau'r Grug - 100 Welsh Dance Tunes' published by the Welsh Folk Dance Society. It's a great tune and you can really get stuck in to the A-music returning from the B-music each time! Original key is in C, but works well for D/G melodeon in the key of G. I made this transcription for a workshop at Melodeons at Witney in 2016. Feel free to use it.

Edit:
Here's a link to one of my teaching recordings (i.e. basic, no clever stuff).
https://www.dropbox.com/s/yh1fqxc2o0b2rir/Mopsi_D%C3%B4n_demo.mp3?dl=0

If you want an ABC version, I've only got the original version in the key of C and I'm not sitting at my usual computer so can't transpose it for you just now. However, I'm sure you will be able to do the necessary to get it into G.

Your soundclip sounds great Steve. I hope you continue to teach this tune tune in your deservedly well respected workshops; also lots of useful background information - thanks. I have a copy of Blodau'r Grug - I really must discipline myself to learn some more tunes from it. I only used Richard Robinson's transcription after being directed there by Dave Ball. Would be delighted to hear other players interpretations whatever the source.

I think the title is probably "Brus" in Norwegian and refers either to a kind of drink, usually something sparkling or carbonated.  There are also many "gammeldans" (old-time dance tunes) melodies with titles like "Hammarforsens Brus" where it's referring to the "brus" or sparkling spray from a waterfall (fors) at a place...in this case Hammarforsen, Ragunda in the Swedish county/province of Jämtland.  Tune link:

Ah, thank you for that link Dick. It's always interesting to see what two 5-row players can achieve, especially when it comes to richness in sound.

However, I'm fairly certain that this song is indeed called Bruce and not Brus. For reference, see my earlier post with links to the original song in a studio and a live version. The band itself is very well worth a listen if you enjoy modern scandinavian music.
Futhermore, I'm currently learning a completely new song as well, it's called Bruce (Recordings: Live (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOL3jxZZ72Y) and Studio (https://open.spotify.com/track/03dEG6yM84ITNDm1tsU7Wd)).

Complicated enough, isn't it? Started yesterday evening, got the basics down already. Will try to post in the next few days. Lots of practice needed still...

Edit: And thank you Winston for your nice comment. (:)

OK!!!

There are several groups called Nordic it seems.  From the structure, rhythmic swing and title, another distinct possibility is that the title refers to American old- time fiddler extrodinaire Bruce Molsky who has spent a lot of time jamming, performing and recording with Scandinavian folk musicians. 

Here's a clip of Bruce and Swedish musician Ale Möller together:  https://youtu.be/ufYuLVPgAu0

I think we're onto something here...
