If we could widen the time signature idea to include tunes in unusual time signatures I have lots of interesting contributions, like 5/4 hornpipes, a Macedonian tune that's all in plain G major but 13/8 time, and a few other Balkan gems.

The next TOTM poll will appear a little late due to the holiday season; expect it on or around the 26th ...

Cheers,

Clive

It's about time we had East Anglian tunes as a TOTM or ThOTM.
I reckon enough of you
  • have a copy of Before the Night was Out
  • have been to EA workshops at Melodeons and More
  • have similarly been to EA workshops at Melodeons at Witney
  • have CDs of EA tunes/musicians
  • etc.
  • etc.
Let's see/hear what you can do with them.  :D

Great idea - I'll certainly use this in the next couple of months or so (but probably not this month). Are there any ABC collections of East Anglian music about?

East Anglian ... is a great idea, but I don't think I'd know an East Anglian tune if it came up and bit me.  Suggestions?

Anything by Oscar Woods would be good. "Oh Joe the boat is going over" is one of my favourites: "English Music from East Anglia" Topic records 1973, but no doubt someone will know of a more easy to access version.

A little different than perhaps what Steve meant, but the collection of William Clarke (from Feltwell, Norfolk) can be found here - http://www.maryhumphreys.co.uk/WilliamClarketunes.abc

As a theme, what about fast, lively tunes slowed down and mellowed? A while ago a group of us were all knackered and after a good chucking about of the usual tunes, we had a go at playing some of them slow. It remains the most relaxing and one of the most enjoyable sessions I've been part of, and it allowed us all to try new things and introduced different elements to tunes that would normally be played at breakneck speed

Whilst I'm obviously delighted at Ollie giving Mary's site another plug, Before The Night Was Out has to be the definitive collection of what most people would call East Anglian music, especially from Norfolk and Suffolk, and it's available on line from the EATMT site on that link.

While the book's tunes content no doubt exists in machine readable form (whether graphics, ABC, PDF or other), I would guess none of that material is for publication on the internet as EATMT own the copyright and want you to buy the book -thoroughly recommended, of course.

There are ABC files of some of the better known Norfolk and Suffolk tunes all over the place, transcribed from various recordings, but you have to search for them - I'm not aware of a collection of them.
