Title: Looking for a second tune to go with....
Post by: Jambouton on January 26, 2008, 02:53:18 PM
... Valse a Mary.  It's the tune you hear when you open Bernard Loffet's website.  A lovely tune and I'm learning  it at the moment. 

I'd like another tune to go with it.  Breton would be nice.  If not, then a Scottish tune, if it can be found.  Can anyone suggest anything?

Thanks, pals.

How about: Le Temps des Cerises, which also shows on Bernard's song list. Fairly easy to learn, and very melodic.

Thanks for this.  I'm not sure about this one.  It's quite a nice tune but it sounds a bit like Molly Malone, which could be distracting. In fact, I found a website with Yves Montand signing the song and I thought he was going to break into a French version of the Irish classic. Anyway, I'll give the tune a try and see how it goes. 

Encore merci, Francois.  "Chantant coques et moules, vivant, vivant oh"......

There is another waltz called Toutouig in Bernard's list of Breton songs.

...or if you are in for some exotic québécois tune, and are ready to transpose, try:

Valse Jeannette (http://amicus.collectionscanada.ca/gramophone-bin/Main/ItemDisplay?l=1&l_ef_l=-1&v=1&lvl=1&coll=24&itm=31392250)

The accordeonist is Tezraf Latour.

Valse des bas de laine (Woollen socks waltz) (http://amicus.collectionscanada.ca/gramophone-bin/Main/ItemDisplay?l=1&l_ef_l=-1&v=1&lvl=1&coll=24&itm=31392857)

played by Édouard Picard.
