I might as well post this. I wasn't going to. It's still half baked. I think the next take might have worked  ;D

Happy new year!
Here is a very late proposal.. Very minimalist arrangement in the manner of « the gloaming » with piano, double bass, flugelhorn and... diatonic accordion.

Mind, that was worth waiting for! Thanks, Thoon.

Although I can carry on messing with melodeons, the ongoing attention of the Ministry of Truth and the Thought Police will (no doubt) eventually teach me to really love Big Brother!

Hunt the Squirrel

Here's my late entry. December was just too busy with the holidays and with the kids being off of school. I decided to learn the same hornpipe version that Anahata included in his video. This was collected by Cecil Sharp and published in 1909 in "Country Dance Tunes" but (to my ear at least) it is an obvious descendant of the better-known Playford tune. I learned this out of John Kirkpatrick's "English Choice" tunebook and the accompanying CD.
