Poll: Tune of the Month for January 2015
« on: December 26, 2014, 12:15:58 AM »

Hi everyone; hope you've had a great Christmas! This month's nominations:

- Haste to the Wedding, narrow runner up last time, but here it goes again, one more try for glory! A session standard 32 bar jig, often played on one row (and well suited to it) here demonstrated ably by Lester, http://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/tune-315-haste-to-wedding-headington.html ; direct youtube link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fUlAn9XkFI

- Mrs Savage's Whim, must confess not sure how this will fit on melodeon, but we can but try eh? Played by Boldwood, rather beautifully here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrn377kyz44

- Enrico, another session standard, and 'Thomas Hardy's favourite tune' says Lester! Lester's demo is here: http://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/tune-282-enrico.html and the direct youtube is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5USt1PI_ZU . Another tune well suited to one row.

- En Avant Blonde - traditional (I think!) French waltz; nice little tune that sits nicely in Em on a D/G. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aesoSRvoKXw

There you go folks; happy voting - have a great new year.

Mrs Savage's Whim just so happens to be in one of my new tunebooks I got this week (John of the Green: The Cheshire Way) so that has my vote as triple time hornpipes are super awesome and I'm determined to learn many of them. I expect it won't win but it'll give me something else to learn anyway!

Hi everyone; hope you've had a great Christmas! This month's nominations:
- Mrs Savage's Whim, must confess not sure how this will fit on melodeon, but we can but try eh? Played by Boldwood, rather beautifully here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrn377kyz44

The last minute or so was a bit interesting, but overall, after a couple of listenings, I thought most of it a bit muddled and repetitious. The performers seemed seemed quite into it though. Different strokes............

Fair comment - it's nice, but I haven't rushed off to try and learn it yet like I have with some of the leveret stuff. Still, it's the tune that we need to judge rather than the interpretation...

Once again, I have unerringly picked the tune with the least votes. This is why I don't bet on horses, and never win the lottery,

Hope y'all had a great Christmas.

Haste to the Wedding is a reasonably tiring Fieldtown dance, that keeps going and has unusually 4 backsteps then next time 4 beetlecrushers backwards then next time 4 upright capers backwards getting out of a round....in fact it's all heys and rounds. We dance it for weddings.
Just in case anyone was wondering.....   ::)

I like the rendition of haste to  the wedding played on youtube by Serge Carrier  on 4 stop one row accompanied by piano.  Nice foot tapping  rhythm

Not the way Fairport Convention play it as the first number in the Royal Seleccion No 13 Medley on "Bonny Bunch of Roses"! But then, I tend to play it as a standard sort of English 6/8 two-step (jig versus 2-step controversy alert!); we always used it as the tune to "Farmer's Jig" when it was the first dance at a wedding ceilidh.

Have to agree. Really nice playing.

Yes - nice bounce, just the way I like it; and excellent bellows control - a superb object lesson.
