Great lot of stuff this month chaps; thanks, and keep it going! Here's a couple of sets I intended to post last week on our local facebook music session lockdown group; circumstances meant I never got round to it. So here, for your sole delectation is a couple of videos, which serendipitously happen to be in a minor key.

https://youtu.be/fXCS4lF9eKU - 2 waltzes from the playing of Mr Cutting, the first being Jon Swayne's rather gorgeous waltz Molinara, as heard on Blowzabella's really rather good CD "Dance". The second is of course the ever-present classic Flatworld.

https://youtu.be/SdCNq4wiv_E - Also learned from the playing of Mr Cutting now I think about it, La Boite a Frissons, a really beautiful fast waltz from Jean Blanchard. I've known this tune years; don't know why it hasn't made it onto my youtube channel by now, because goodness knows, just about everything else has.

All played on the Castagnari Mory in E minor. Please enjoy the company of Mr Tickle and Little Miss Naughty in the background; I've been taking inspiration in set design from Dougie Maclean and his wonderful Mr Tattieface concerts that have he's been posting on facebook during the lockdown (side comment, if you haven't followed those, you really should. 30+ concerts, 30 mins each, and they're fantastic).
