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

http://www.iliff.co.uk/abc/tunes/113%20Pterodactyl%20Two-Step.pdf

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


I heard some sad news about Huw yesterday on the May dance out I was on. I'm told that he has some progressive medical condition that now prevents him playing the melodeon as he can't get his fingers round it any more. He's still playing harp and guitar at the moment...

But at least this thread has reminded me of Pterodactyl Two-Step, so I've dusted it off for the ceilidh band, so thanks everyone here (and thanks to Huw for writing it too...)

Cheers,
Guy

Having dug out the book to check the tune, I've been browsing through it and found this, which suggests we are free to use it if we want to, as long as it's properly acknowledged:

"About Copyright
John and Sue's compositions are assigned to several copyright owners
[details snipped]
To perform, broadcast, or record any of these tunes, permission is not necessary as long as the composer and copyright owner or publisher is duly acknowledged. None of the tunes may be reproduced on paper or otherwise unless the permission of the publisher is first obtained"
(oops... does posting ABC here count...?)

Deciphering the codes reveals that Fireside Polka's publisher and copyright owner is Island Music Ltd.

I think we would be caught by:

"None of the tunes may be reproduced on paper or otherwise unless the permission of the publisher is first obtained"

I'm pretty sure the "otherwise" would cover abc on the web

Does that mean I should pull my posting on http://forum.melodeon.net/index.php/topic,4044.0.html ?

Either that or ask for permission.  Or, I think if you sent a copy direct to another person then it would not count as "publishing".

Canal en Octobre in the late 80's 90's 'cos everyone who went to Embraud (including one Mr Cutting) seemed to want to play it too. I have to say I particularly like Andy's version, which somehow gave the tune a new and separate life.

CanalAutrerfois" or "Une Autre Fois" - translating "another time" (either sense) or "of the past". I am absolutely sure the ambiguity is intentional. Strange thing is that if I start in a session  with the frankly delightful Autrefois no one knows it - although everyone joins in mightily once the tune changes.

Not formally checked but I believe the 'canal' is the lateral navigation of the Loire "territoires d'outre-mer"http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?&hnear=Embraud,+03320+Ch%C3%A2teau-sur-Allier,+Allier,+Auvergne,+France&ll=46.880376,3.172989&spn=0.359981,1.056747&z=11

On second thought - maybe waiting another 4 months for this one is a no brainer ...  ;)

Bay Horse Brawl - A new tune composed by flautist Annie Collier of Otley, West Yorks (I have already sought and gained permission to publish)

A simple but haunting tune in Emin which should provide plenty of scope for improvisations and embellishments.

There's quite a nice "'Bar Room Branle" out there somewhere. Heard it in the mid 90's but cannot remember a note - any one else?

Yep, nice tune. Plays nicely on a D/G, though you need an F natural accidental - unusual in that the B music is in the key of C major. Written by Rob Kay of Tickled Pink as I recall?

I'll add my support for 'Le Canal en Octobre'.
A great tune and you can do a lot with it.
