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... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFM_f36k42k

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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7DYijyLVwk

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!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-Qxfc45BkU and this one from Mr Ellison https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB0R8tX9Mgc

Ton-y-Botel - a recent contribution on Lester's tune a day blog, a Welsh hymn tune: https://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/tune-496-ton-y-botel.html

Happy voting everyone!

Cheers,

Clive

The best recording of Les Deux Freres I know is here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QC1LxI6IYKs
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.
