A homespun version of Road to Lisdoonvarna, and Foxhunters Slip Jig, on a Hohner D/G in silver celluloid.

I just got a copy of the CD "Travailleurs de la Mer" by Andrew Lawrence-King and the Harp Consort, of music from Guernsey.  The words are more local (and more interesting) than the tunes, which are mostly Breton and French, but there are a few tunes that Lawrence-King claims are from Guernsey itself (and he should know, he's from there).  Not very melodeon-friendly, though.

I can't figure out how to quit but I will no longer check this group and have deleted all shortcuts to it.

Here's the Trade Wind Hornpipe and Corn Riggs.
Listeners of a certain generation (myself included, natch) will, of course, know the first one as (part of) the theme of BBC radio's The Navy Lark.

The first one almost qualifies for the summer theme of "something you've just learnt" as I found the music back in June and had a go at learning it then.
I've been trying to get the hang of the trade wind hornpipe for ages. It a always turn out like a less Dawson version as soon as I speed up. Lol

Excellent cd, though!
