We've had our final workshop of the season, and I can now try to enjoy some rest, go sailing and play and run a few festival events... We'll be at Broadstairs if anyone's going to that one.

Four tunes this week; for technical reasons, two more follow in a reply to this email.

While preparing for this week's workshops, I found myself thinking that there's more to Oh Dear, What Can The Matter Be? than I'd realised and that Jimmy Allen becomes a far more pleasant tune when played lightly and at something approaching a reel speed rather than as a doughy sort of march, as generally used for clog morris.

Perhaps some of you will agree, or maybe you won't! Anyway, on with the tunes. As usual, the slow demonstrations include the tunes played in a fairly basic way, and also with alternative chords, decorations and octave passages, etc.

I'm familiar with Jimmy Allen from contra dances in the US, for which it is played at a speed that makes your version seem quite leisurely, which I rather like as a happy medium!
