Poll: Tune of the Month for August 2015
« on: July 24, 2015, 12:23:26 AM »

Here we are folks - 4 more tunes:

Dribbles of Brandy - a lovely old jig, here ably played and demo'd at slow speed by Gavin Atkin - cheers Gavin! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9RcRloiRwo . Also known as 'Brothers in York'.

Soldier's Joy - a session standard, well known and played just about everywhere! Courtesy of Lester, here we go:
http://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/tune-214-soldiers-joy.html and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6wfiRJkABY - thank you Lester

Bonny Kate - another session standard, with opportunity for plenty of nice bass runs, thank you again Lester:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMve33Toyyk and http://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/tune-75-bonny-kate.html

and finally

The Rose Tree - once more, thank you Lester;
http://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/tune-95-rose-tree.html and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkzS8JPtgQE#t=50 ... and a slightly more up tempo version from Liam Robinson - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI2ytdycnL8

Three deliberately simpler tunes this month, and Dribbles of Brandy which I'd rate as moderate. All fit nicely on a 2 row melodeon (or indeed one row) and all are great tunes; vote away!

Cheers,

Clive

Hi folks - personal convenience kicking in here; going to call this result a little early - this month's winner, Dribbles of Brandy!
