Here we are again folks - choosing our tune for next month!

Two runners up from last time first!

Bonny Kate - another session standard, with opportunity for plenty of nice bass runs, thank you again Lester: and

The Rose Tree - once more, thank you Lester; and ... and a slightly more up tempo version from Liam Robinson -

A Youtube that's almost note for note, played at a sedate pace. -

Anahata and Mary playing a close relative! (starts around 1:56 in) -

There you go, happy voting!

I voted in the "Recruiting Officer"... Don't know why... maybe this version in violin. A rare instrument appearing here. Nice.
