Shall we have another poll?
Last month's runner up is:
- The Keel Row - Here's Liam Robinson playing this quicker than I probably would... rapper dance speed, I guess. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kauUXCDztjM
. Slowed down, it's a classic hornpipe too of course.
... and just because it came very close, and I like the tune, we'll have last month's runners up runners up too:
- Morpeth Rant - The first tune of Bill's set here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLlwpBnpF6Y
; one of my favourite tunes from North England, and I can't believe we haven't done it yet!
... and two others, since we have no new nominations this month, here's a couple of off the wall possibilities:
- Willow Express - written by Chris Shaw, and here played by his band GIGCB https://youtu.be/za8_iIqQ2TU
. Very fun 48 bar jig, in 3 parts... partly in Em, partly in G. There is a *long* intro before the main tune itself kicks in.
- Beetle on the Wine - 32 bar reel written by Dave Whetstone of Albion Band/Cock and Bull Band fame. Here played by... me: https://youtu.be/ZoT3Bx1VGnw?t=2m
(2nd tune in the set, starts 2 minutes in). Great tune, ideally suited to a 2 row melodeon. I'm playing it in G on a G/C here (sorry for the confusion), but it would normally sit in D on a D/G.
Happy voting folks,
