For theme of the month, have we done Welsh music?
Another possibility is the Buttrey Music Project, to which many Melnetters have contributed transcription efforts.

Could that be a way in for Peadar's recent suggestion of Cwm Rhondda, perhaps? (Fingers crossed!)

One of the very early themes; nothing to stop us rerunning it! ... though on reflection, probably not right now since we've just run 'Tunes from the British Isles' a few months ago.

Tempted as I am by Greg's suggestion (broaden to include the vegetables?), I think a theme encouraging the exploration of manuscripts such as Buttrey would be good. However could that be a tad problematic for those who don't read music ?
Which reminds me to put in a late entry to last months theme provided the builders stop hammering today (at least neighbours wouldn't hear our constant music practice !)

Buttrey is quite new, so there won't be many recordings. Even when there are some, by-ear players will be restricted to tunes others have already done while music readers will have the run of the whole ms. to choose from - which seems a bit unfair to me.

On the other hand, it would ensure that recordings of some of the tunes get out in the wild - not a bad thing in itself.

On the other hand, the repertoire of the Buttery MS is fairly standard 18C/early19C popular British dance music and ballads, as far as I can see. A lot of the tunes are extant already, as recordings. For those that aren't, A lot of people seem happy to learn from the midi renditions given by abc editors (although, personally, I can't stand them).

OK, I'll bite. How many vegetable related tunes can we name?

Ramsbottom used to have a song called Charlie Sparrer's Marrer…

I endorse this. I played for a Welsh dance group once long ago and their tunes had a different quality to them.

And given how well my learning of La Sourde is going perhaps I ought to compose La Salade.
