C3/3C Captains is a nice tune that I haven't played for an actual dance in years. Good call.

In order to rescue it from session hell, to hear how far it has now been transmuted from the original and because it's a fun bass workout "The Dark Island"

Nice picture of a couple of our chosen composers from folk photographer Jeff Dantin's blog

Frédéric central on the big drum.  Maxou to the right on fife (tall, glasses). The other photos give an nice feel for how the Embraud festivals run.

The Belfast Hornpipe, please. I'm only a beginner, but I think that it's far more fun than learning my scales and I'd dearly love to watch someone really good playing it.

A combination of Christmas and a house full of flu means TOTM's poll will be a couple of days later this month.

Cheers,

What about The Cheshire Waltz since people are waltzing already. A lovely tune, in my opinion, made even more so here by Spiers and Boden in spight of the fact that J.S. is playing one of those weird squeezy concertina thingies ('cos he can I guess).

How about Woodland Flowers. There's a lovely archive recording of Will Starr playing it. He goes off somewhere else completely in the middle. I can remember being forced to do country dancing in the school playground to 78 rpm recordings like this on a wind up gramophone. I hated it.  >:E

There's also a recording of Bob Cann playing it on this page. (Thanks gypsylad)

No he doesn't. He's playing it exactly per the score of "Woodland Flowers" in the book of Felix Burns compositions published by the National Association of Accordion and Fiddle Clubs (Scotland). I think you're referrring to the Trio section.

Just goes to show you can't make much of a job of a tune on an instrument missing some of the key notes.
