For an unusual theme of the month, perhaps we could do something like famous film themes?  I'm a huge fan of John Williams myself.

For reasons best known to myself I've collected together as many tunes as I can find with the title 'Trip to ...' or similar. This could perhaps be a suitable ThOTM? ABC file is attached.

I like this theme Pete, but could it not be broadened a bit to include things like Road to Lisdoonvarna, Rocky Road to Dublin, Goin' to Kansas City, Off to California or to simplify: Traveling tunes ;D

Another vote for Idbury Hill.  I like Lester's version with capers. (I think that is what they are called).

Weasel in the Grass.

Nice, fun, 3 parts, not hard.  I guess it is a Morris Jig?

I agree. Famous film themes could prove to be a very interesting Theme of the Month.

How about Tom tulley's Hornpipe. I've just heard it on hardcore English and it's lovely.  There's an abc on the session site.

Birchy, I agree It's a lovely tune and I'm always surprised it doesn't come up more at sessions.

Great tune, also know as Tom Fowler's and available with two major alternative versions of the B music, one with 4 bars more than the other.

A good slower tune is Planxty Irwin by O'Carolan.
