Poll: Tune of the Month for August 2018
« on: July 25, 2018, 04:04:59 PM »

Hi Folks

4 more tunes for you to choose from:

Runner up last month (just) was the Bacca Pipes Jig; here's Jim Sawyer again, just a later on in the same video: https://youtu.be/PIpZYznP1CY?t=3m31s

The remaining 3 tunes come from some old entries in the nominated tunes list which we've never got round to doing...

Chassepain, written by Gilles Chabanet from La Chavannee, etc - demo'ed nice and close up by Mel,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIvpIYUD_ww ; french 2/4 bourree commonly played with another of his compositions, Boudemic. Pretty popular in sessions around here. Mel playing full speed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URM5Pw1Xp-k

The Valiant, written by Simon Ritchie, and again demo'ed nice and close up by Mel, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIvpIYUD_ww ; a rather splendid english jig. Here played at full speed by Anahata and Mary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIvpIYUD_ww

3 Sea Captains, traditional tune as played by Howard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URM5Pw1Xp-k

There you go; what do you fancy? As usual, you can vote for more than one!

Oh, you guys. 9-9-9-9! Let's open the poll for a bit longer :-) I'll close the poll a bit later on tonight. Remember that you can change your vote - just remove it, then redo it.
