Still squeezing after all these years.

The first tune is a variant of Bonny Dundee, the second is a variant of the Atholl Highlanders.

Cracking playing, very much like the late great Bob Cann.

Maybe she was a few years older by the time you met her.

On a bit of a Playford binge at the moment, after I saw the rather lovely early music band 'The Carnival Band' a week or so ago, which put me on to more Playford tunes I hadn't come across before.

Here's my attempt at Cuckolds All A Row: https://soundcloud.com/robotmay/cuckolds-all-a-row

Could be - I wonder if she finally became The Hag With The Money.....

An italian one (from  the italian theme of the month).  Sounds like a jig to me.
Does anyone know the name? maybe if you have kept the Ciapa rusa Sleeve.

Here we are folks; 2 jigs in G on the Hohner Lucia.

http://youtu.be/BchM2hzpQxM

The first is Like Pretty Birds, a Shaker tune uncovered from William Coulter and Barry Phillips albums of Shaker music; the second the Conversational Jig (as opposed to Controversial, Conservational, Confrontational, or whatever other variation you can think of!) and was written by me, a couple of days ago. I like the A music, not sure about the B music, but for now it will do...

Enjoy,

Clive
