Id like to suggest this great sounding tune. I don't  know anything about it but would like to learn it. I can only find one version of it on a melodeon. I believe its called Haughs o' Cromdale but correct me if I am wrong.

Tunes often have several names - I've always known this as Trallee Gaol.
Thanks for that info Ellisteph. There seems to be a lot more out there under that title!

For Theme of the month, how about 'Tunes that Lester hasn't recorded'?

Not a tune of the month, but a theme of the month suggestion:
Singing a duet, to your own playing, in front of a mass audience, whilst roller blading.

Tunes often have several names - I've always known this as Trallee Gaol.

That tune is an Irish polka derived from "The Haughs of Cromdale" - the Scottish tune was, I think, first printed as a song in Hogg's "Jacobite Relics" and is still often sung (the words are a great example of historical bollocks for the sake of a good story).  It's most often played as a strathspey under the "Haughs of Cromdale" title, but there is a reel version of it in Kerr's Merry Melodies volume 1, "Glen Lyon".

I'm going to suggest a Theme of the Month ... tunes named for a person (real or fictional) Play the tune and share something about the person.

The Rose of Raby by Dave Shepherd of Blowzabella.

I recorded this tune yesterday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb7Db9FGU2o and thought what a great Tune of the Month it would make. I would love to hear what the more experienced players do with it.

I've recently discovered a lovely tune called Kevin Keegans's Waltz,the second tune in this clip.
It's a bit above my pay grade at the moment ::)
I'd love to see it played by some of the more accomplished players on here.

Yes, that's a good idea - can't believe we haven't done that one yet.

Royal Scots Polka  is an interesting and reasonably tricky tune that works well on the row ( or accross if you prefer) on a standard 2 row box

there is a youtube vid of an early recording of Jimmy Shand playing the royal scots  polka

Looking through the list of tunes that we've had as Tune of the Month so far I was surprised to see that The Cheshire Waltz hasn't made it through. It's a lovely old tune that can be played straight or developed into something a little more adventurous as it is here by Squeezy & Jon Boden.

Here is the tune as transcribed by The Village Music Project:

X:84
T:Cheshire Waltz. JGi.084
O:Tealby,Lincolnshire
M:3/8
L:1/16
Q:3/8=60
S:Joshua Gibbons MS,1823,Tealby,Lincs.
R:waltz
Z:VMP/R.Greig, 2009
K:C

|:F2|E2G2c2|c2B2A2|B2d2g2|f4e2|f2e2f2|A2d2c2|cBAGAB|c6||

Here's my attempt at an abc with several slight alterations, somewhat in the spirit of S&B:

X:61
T:Cheshire Waltz, The
N:Spiers and Boden version
B:The Lincolnshire Collection
Q:100
M:3/8
L:1/16
