Great stuff Luke thanks! Awesome box and it seems to be bloody loud as it gives overdrive effect  (:)

There ye go. Three polkas, the last two are from the playing of Benny McCarthy. There's no practice or warm-up on this one so it could be better I'm afraid.

Anatoly, that's what m'box is like with 2 of the 3 voices on, I'll get a sample up with the full LMM on if I can.

Luke.

I'm sure I have these tunes on a Jackie Daley LP from ages ago....well played Luke

Love the tune , and the playing .

I have this on my youtune favourites of Tony MacMahon and an overly enthusiatic John Keogh with , probably , a few wines in him.

Music from Ireland - any music from Ireland, North or South. A country full of beautiful, evocative and driving traditional music, in many forms and styles. And, lest we forget, this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXouSYabDig

Plenty of opportunity to choose tunes that we all know, or something a little more esoteric if the mood takes you!

Enjoy,

Clive

Wow, first time I have ever felt sorry for the Irish.

... end of the month, so there's a new theme up! Late submissions as ever, always welcome - just tag them on the end here.

I'll slip my contribution in quietly, after everyone's gone home... http://soundcloud.com/dogbox/jimmys-favourite
I got this reel from an irish friend who plays it with a great head of steam on his B/C box. It's known as Lord Ramsey's in Ireland, Big John McNeill's in Scotland, and fiddlers often play it in Amajor.

Its played on my trusty old 19 button Baffetti D/G Black Pearl which has low notes instead of accidentals. The recording seemed to pick up a different reed sound to what I hear as I play, which might be because I had the mic too close on the treble side.

Here's a couple of session standards from myself and fiddler Maija Henderson playing together as 'Kurio'. I am playing on my Hohner pre Corona ADG, and have added a guitar track.

I really enjoyed that!  Much more than I thought I would (I have Irish music PTSD ... so many tunes!  so fast!  the horror!  the horror!) ... no, seriously, loved it.
