Grimstock, Playford 1651
« on: July 14, 2009, 04:36:20 PM »

Hi just thought I'd post a very simple arrangement of Grimstock, Playford 1651 up as a PDF. I've done it up in D it has simple bass note accomp which can be modified, of course, to taste. Hope you like this very interesting and extremely catchy tune. The key is to keep it moving. I like playing it  - hope some of you out there enjoy it too!

Thanks Al. The first time I came into contact with this, I thought we were being asked to perform a "Grim Stockade", which I took to be some dance step peculiar to Mr Playford and his disciples. It was some time before I came to realise that it was a "Grimstock Hey"! Well  .... .. ;)

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Tony Battilana, who often attends Melodeons at Witney has published a book of many of the Playford tunes arranged for D/G melodeon. It's called 'Push-pull Playford'. There is an audio CD which comes with it too.

I'm not sure where you can get it from - Tony used to have it for sale at Witney -  but there is a (rather isolated) web page about it here:

Ah - just found a rather out-of-date contact listing:
http://www.battilana.ndo.co.uk/ and go to the 'publications' link.

I think I got mine from Tony at one of the Mobberley, Cheshire, English Sessions.

Does anyone have a good arrangement for Sallinger's Round? This is a top notch tune but can sound a bit dead after two or three times through.

I bought my copy directly from Tony using this precise link -- so it worked for me. And it was not that long ago. Highly recommended. I've also seen it on festival stalls a few times -- I think PJ Music did indeed have it at Ely last weekend for example.
