Not pop
Not estoteric
Not folk
Not in copyright......

"Liberty Bell" by John Philip Sousa
6/8, key of G (mostly) with a couple of accidentals within the range of most D/G boxes.

Well, ok, the C part goes into the key of C, but largely due to the theme music of Monty Python no-one ever remembers the C part.

So, my nomination is; Liberty Bell (A&B parts), aka the Monty Python theme.

(And Three Around Three if we are sticking to folky stuff.)

I use a melodeon friendly version of Liberty Bell - all in G and most of the hard accidentals missing, but played loud and with verve no one notices  ;D

For TOTM, copyright is the main issue; assuming we ask (where practical) the copyright owners for permission to use their music, I very much doubt any of these would agree. ThemeOTM is a little different though; since there's rarely more than one or two vids of any one tune, I don't see any particular harm. Perhaps we could try a 'non-folk' ThemeOTM ?

You're quite right, Clive, I was forgetting, that's the snag.  We've actually been pretty fortunate in the past when you've asked for permissions, that the authors have agreed, haven't we?

Are there so many tunes about weather? I can only think of two bluegrass songs..not very suitable for the melodeon I guess:(

Hehe, I bet there is reason to compose more tunes about the weather in England than anywhere else:D

Liberty bell reminded me of the theme from Blott on the landscape. I don't know if its really a suitable melodeon tune - it would need some re-arranging.

Nomination for:  Pterodactyl 2-Step

Noted. Great tune, but it's pretty hard! It's the *other* tune from Wales that I know, by the way.

Have you got a video/sound file for it?

Pterodactyl from a great site, not sure what the copywrite requirements are, so here is URL:

Also, DTN has a terrific version on Youtube.

Ah, yes, so he does - I'd forgotten about that vid. Huw Williams has/had a page on the BBC Wales site, since he does some presenting work for them - I'd guess he's probably contactable from that. For everyone's sanity though, I only tend to contact authors when it looks like their tune has a reasonable chance of winning the poll, so we won't pester him quite yet.

I'm always amazed at how Huw can have that skill in melodeon playing, tune writing, songwriting, guitar and singing all at the same time - it just isn't fair! Oh, and he is/was a champion Welsh clog dancer as well, as I recall. Talented chap.

Cheers,

Clive

How about "the Ash Grove" I loved j.w.forrester's version for the March theme of the Month (is this the same as Chris' suggestion or is "the Ash tree" completely different?).
