Poll: Tune of the Month for October 2018
« on: September 25, 2018, 07:02:48 PM »

Hi all: this month's suggestions:

Jiggery Pokerwork - last month's close runners up is this famous tune from John Spiers - https://lesters-tune-a-day.blogspot.com/2013/02/tune-182-jiggery-pokerwork.html . Written around the accidentals on a pokerwork, and quite a workout. To play it on a one row or non-accidental box will take a bit of fudging which could be quite an interesting exercise in itself.

Kilavil Jig - trad Irish jig, here demonstrated wonderfully by Serge Carrier. Great one row tune, and it happens to be first up if you type 'melodeon jig' into youtube... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seAdetCpgZQ

Hesleyside Reel - trad from Northumbria; here's a great version to learn it from by Gavin Atkin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8TStsxe3ws although I confess to also liking this slow version too... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELtqzqlbRJo

Bouffard's Waltz / Valse a Bouffard - no prizes who wrote this! Ace gurdy player Patrick Bouffard, and quite a favourite on the french music scene. Oddly I can't find any normal speed versions of this on the melodeon on youtube, but there's this slow tutorial from Daddy Long Les perfect for learning off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SyFUn693j0 . I can only assume it has a full name. Here's a nice version on gurdy/guitar that should help make sense of how it sounds at dance speed:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8lML2cpEgU

There you go; happy voting folks!

Apologies all; have recovered the poll data following a database glitch. Hopefully it should work again now :-)

I'm impressed that someone has posted their contribution before it has actually become a "thing".  Very nice too Folk Blues and Beyond...
