Poll: Tune of the Month for April 2017
« on: March 25, 2017, 05:42:25 PM »

Here we are again folks - take your pick from this lot:

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!

Time will end - thank you for this nomination; lovely choice - always liked this tune, but never tried it on melodeon. Fits really nicely in this hornpipe  version by Mike Mussell - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1xpPbicFu0

Jolly Beggarman - Here played by Ed Rennie, this is (I believe according to my limited musical knowledge) a delightful exercise in mixolydian key playing; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwHTCqG_5MQ

Reel Beatrice - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgaNbSof7Mc ; Reel BĂ©atrice, a composition by Jos Bouchard from Charlevoix in Quebec. Quite a well known tune, quite complex, and in many parts - so you could do as simple or as complex a version as you wish.

Cheers,

Clive
