Molly Bloom by Alun Munde. A banjo tune which hit the inbox very recently . Taken straight and then knoodled as a dotted hornpipe.

https://youtu.be/468gUh4so6w

Something of an 'exercise' on the melodeon, (the harmonisation is from the tab - attached). I listened to live versions where the A part finishes high, (cf tab,) so incorporated both when playing.

All the best

Sine Bhàn - Oran ghaoil Ileach a rinn Duncadh MacIain aig àm a Chogaidh Mhor.

 
https://youtu.be/U6CVAYlpTFc

Sine Bhàn- heard at Ceolas (and other places). On a Hohner AD with Bronze reeds. Lots of hesitations and missed notes but I am far too tired to try another take.

You have been busy. Good to see how you got round the complex harmonies.

A nice sultry version of Summertime. Thanks for sharing your recording - and that's a lovely sounding box you've got there.

Thank you Smiley I really appreciate that! Still trying to work out some subtleties but I think it’s getting there....

And now for something completely different.

The Wounded Huzzay:
https://soundcloud.com/greg-bradfield-smith/the-wounded-huzzay-24-07

I first came across this tune in the Buttrey MS, where it was the trickiest of all the tunes I transcribed because two completely settings had been overlaid.

This setting owes more to Leveret than Butterey.  I slowed it down as much as I dared.

This is the second take, the first one fell off the edge.
I am suffering, rather, from the timing issues Q has posted about, but I promised myself I would post the first completed attempt.

Greg, that sounds good!
I'm struggling somewhat listening on my phone trying not to disturb the campsite. Looking forward to a proper listen when at home at normal volume. Good to get another Buttrey tune out there!

That was lovely! It seemed, for me, to catch the real emotion of a lament, I really liked it.

Here's one I've just learnt from the Blodau'r Grug Welsh tunebook. Played on my C/F Loffet Pro in Gm; fingers were sticking to the buttons. This heat doesn't help box players.

Well played Greg. By coincidence, my daughter presented me with Leveret's latest CD for my birthday yesterday, so I'm just getting acquainted with this tune (as well as all the others). Did Leveret get it from the Butterey MS? (I know I should read he sleeve notes but it's in the car right now). Need to do more listening to yours & their versions.

Beautifully done.  I learned it as Captain O'Kane credited to T O'Carolan.  A rose by any other name...

Thank you Dick.
 
Looking in my copy of Carolan: The Life Times and Music of an Irish Harper, it is very similar. It must be an early setting. Maybe the earliest. Donal O'Sullivan gives Carolan clear credit.

Captain O'Kane seems to be littered with accidentals. My CF has only got low notes so I can only do a diatonic rendering.. Keeps it, simple though.  :D

I tried to do a version of Golden Brown by the Stranglers. At first glance it looked pretty easy. But I soon realised that I can’t transfer it to the melodeon without making too many sacrifices. :'( Maybe someone has some ideas how to improve it.

Anyway, that’s the tune I’ve just learned:

I love that tune. Before I saw the light I struggled for a few years to learn the piano accordion, sending videos to my brother in law to encourage him. I did one of Golden Brown. Lots of cuts, mainly to show the different sections and different hands, but I remember it took a long time to work out and learn.
Here's a link for the curious.

Absolutely awesome, I love that song. Will definitely also have to give it a go. Did you learn by ear or do you have any kind of transcription of it?

I was wondering where I knew the melody from (because I did not know the original song) and quickly found out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5AUt9u7AIY
A German hip hop duo has used it as a sample in one of their songs from 1998 (starts at ~0:13). :D
