Poll: Tune of the Month for April 2018
« on: March 25, 2018, 05:38:38 PM »

Hello all - this month's collection:

Tip Top Polka - month's runner up for the past 2 months, and played by Paul Earwicker, and very nice too...

Donkey Riding - having seen the thread about Paul Young's video on developing a simple tune, I thought this might be one to consider. Here's Paul's video on it:

Les Deux Freres - there are quite a few videos of this tune now video'ed nice and close up, including this version designed for 2 row melodeon by Naragonia itself (it's in their tune book!) and this one from Mr Ellison

Ton-y-Botel - a recent contribution on Lester's tune a day blog, a Welsh hymn tune:

Happy voting everyone!

The best recording of Les Deux Freres I know is here -
Its a superb marriage of music and dance, which is like poetry in motion.

Thanks for that Hugh. I have just ordered their book of music and I am impatient to get started! I love the gentleness of Naragonia’s music, the subtleties and the sheer beauty of many of their tunes.
