Poll: Tune of the Month for May 2017
« on: April 27, 2017, 06:40:41 AM »

Hi all,

This month's selection:

Jolly Beggarman - Last month's runner up, and here played by Ed Rennie, this is (I believe according to my limited musical knowledge) a delightful exercise in mixolydian key playing;

Trip to Skye - thanks for this suggestion Arty - "he says May I suggest this tune by John Whelan, called "Trip to Skye",
Sheet music available on the web site of Yann-Fanch Perroches: " I also found this tutorial video:

Bluemont Waltz - Thanks Pete for this suggestion, which says:  Here's a nice waltz with plenty of scope for noodling, The Bluemont Waltz by Rodney Miller. Expertly played here by Matt Cranitch & Jackie Daly:

Finally, how about Eleanor Plunkett? An O'Carolan tune, here played (and posted just recently) by Roland Carson, . Oh, and there's this video too which autoplayed when I played Roland's: - that's just lovely, isn't it?
