Enjoy

Oh, that *is* lovely. Win the poll or not, I think I'll have a go at learning it. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Cheers,

Clive

Can anyone tell me why L'Inconnu de Limoise sounds so familiar? Has it been recorded recently or been on a CD? I thought it may have been done by Wood and Cutting, but I don't think so.

Well, isn't that odd. I'd consider it a session standard (which is why I nominated it) - despite being a "recently" composed French tune, most English sessions seem to know it - Frederic Paris' Canal in October is another such tune. If you've ever been to a French music or dance session in England you would almost certainly hear it. A quick search of my Windows Media Player library, and *none* of the CDs/downloads I have has this tune on it (it's originally a La Chavanee tune, and I don't have all their albums, but I'm sure you'll find it on one of them). {Nope, I lie. Nottinghams' RBB Band do it, but they don't know the name of it so call it 'Martin's Mazurka' - hi John, if you're reading by the way}

If Vivant ever do their 'difficult 2nd album' we were considering covering it - I've got another cracking mazurka that goes with it a charm.

Cheers,

Clive
[PS: No, Wood/Cutting don't do it, but they do do 'Canal in October' on one or other of their albums]

Ah ha!! Thanks Clive, your reference to la Chavannee reminded me where I've heard it - not actually on one of their albums, but on a compilation I've got of music from the Auvergne. (Musiques Traditionelles en Auvergne, AMTA 1996, if anyone's interested). It's got La Chavannee on it as well as Freddie P., and loads of other good artists. On this CD, L'Inconnu is played by the group Petite Suite Bourbonnaise with Maxou Heintzen himself on cornmeuse, J.M. Laurent on accordeon and Y.Guilloux singing!

P.S. I love Le Canal en Octobre (both the W&C version and Freddie's original); Here's my attempt to play it:

Yeh it was just a wee thought.  I added it not knowing what to do with it, thought it might win a few hearts and become a tune of the month...

Thanks very much for la cumparsitahttp://www.damianosarzier.com/ has a a couple of nice tangos in Pueblos and Sancho. Click the LH musiques link and try Pueblos which is IMO the more dancable of the two.

I'd take up either Soldiers Joy (easy) Ragtime Annie (harder) and best as a medley. I know this won't float.. there are some great versions of either on youtube, and some slower tutorials if you need them.

Not for me please.

I think a month has been about right on the test run and that weekly tunes would start to overlap and lose focus. I personally rarely let a tune out until I've had it 3 or 4 months. So TOTM is just fine. No great preference as to which come next. Speed the Plough has been a delightful revelation.

Coor! That's a bit tight...I play out at least two or three new tunes a week  - couldn't handle only playing a new tune out once every 3 or 4 months... that would drive me potty...(too late say some)

Agreed.  A month potentially allows ideas to develop and grow.  I somehow doubt we've seen the last (or possibly best?) of StP yet...
