Have we had a Scandinavian Tunes theme of the month yet?
Or even French?

I'd like to suggest a Playford tune, either for 'Tune of the Month' or 'Theme of the Month'.
There are lots to choose from, and many of them are very playable on melodeon. Probably you have played some of them without knowing they are from Playford; some are used for morris, others represent popular dance tunes of the day which are still played now - e.g. Rusty Gully.

So perhaps choose a tune that (a) hasn't yet appeared on TOTM, and (b) isn't normally used for morris.

One of my favourites is Mr Beveridge's Maggot, which became especially well-known after the release of the BBC version of 'Pride and Prejudice'.
Nice video clip here: Mr Beveridge's Maggot.

Original key is G minor, but fits nicely on a D/G melodeon in Em and is not too difficult (nowhere near as hard as the recent TOTM 'Liberty Bell'). Ideally you need a box with a fourth button start to allow you to play the low B, and also a low D# accidental is useful. A 2.5 row box like a Mory is good, and I expect a Hohner Club would work well too. But with a bit of careful fudging, it is quite playable on an ordinary 2-row box with standard accidentals and a 3rd button start.

Here's a full ABC version in Em:
X:1
T:Mr Beveridge's Maggot (Em)
S:Playford's Dancing Master, 7th ed. (1689), 3rd supplement
M:3/2
L:1/8

as we haven't had an american tune yet, plus I'm learning it on fiddle for the fiddle tune of the month so might as well kill two birds with one stone. ;)

maggot. Old Eng. word meaning ‘fanciful idea’, used by 16th- and 17th-cent. composers in titles of instrumental pieces, often country dances.

[elsewhere] Need a nice popular folk tune from Germany please.  :|||:

Unexplored territory! It could be a great idea. I'll resurrect my old biking lederhosen.

Ha Ha Ha. I've got a dirndl for each day of the week...all with matching Doc Martens...spoilt for choice!   :D

Seriously though...how about tunes from around the world.

Liberty Bell: composed by American John Philip Sousa who was known for his American military marches which all strikes me as being rather American.
My vote is for ENGLISH  and, at the risk of being a tad demanding, English Folk to boot.

To be fair, we've had lots of English tunes, it's good to vary the repertoire a bit. I don't think we've had any fast Irish reels yet :P
