First off is a cracking tune from Frank Weatherill of Muker in the Yorkshire Dales

Thanks pikey. Lovely playing. I think I had the Frank Weatherill tune from Steve Thompson as well. I've a recipe for Yorkshire Curd Tart from an old copy of Farmers Weekly that uses beastings to make the curd.


I'd love a copy of that!!  (:)

Still squeezing after all these years.
Mostly on hohners , with a couple of Dinos and a smattering of anglos - and now a Jeffries duet

Cracking playing - I just love the gaps in the first tune!

Four great tunes expertly played. I spotted 'Castles in the Air' and 'Harry Cox's Schottische' , but the other two I'm not sure about - could be 'Mudgee Schottische'?

Here are plenty to listen to.
First off is a cracking tune from Frank Weatherill of Muker in the Yorkshire Dales, collected by Bob Pegg - I got it from Steve Thompson. It's named after a traditional dish that is made from Beestins, the very thick and creamy milk a cow produces straight after calving. It's called  Beestin Pudding (with legs on).....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ae7yXNOZy8I

Second is a tune learned from Gabi Scurfield when we were in the Golden Ball Syncopators in 1977. It's from Alsace-Lorraine, it appears in the film Cabaret, and I've heard it played on bouzoukis in a Greek restaurant in St. Albans! The title, Mums Schottische,  is because Gabi was a new mum at the time, and couldn't remember what is was called...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68V-oBoUrII&feature=related

We usually follow it in a set with this one, Harvest Moon:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrm3hjdA4XQ&feature=related

Then my all time favourite Schottische,  the Indian Queen:

http://youtu.be/LouGC8UJm3k

Followed by a french one  - I don't know what it's called!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01RHdSTFMik

And finishing off with a cracking Scottish one - I wish I knew what it was called!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqgCIr-0WLw

I think you can find a couple of tunes very similar to these on the Bismarcks CD's played by Ed Rennie and the last one is very similar to The Silverton Polka.

I'm only quoting from memory and, on reflection, it might be that it's not from The Bismarcks but form Simon's CD of 'The Posh Band'..........it's my age  :D

Two more recordings.

Schottische Set

Kafoozalum
Old Mrs Huddledee
Keel Row

I can't remember a time when I did not play these tunes. This is great busking set.

That's funny, I also know these tunes, in the same order, and presumably from the same origins, but by these different names:  Nae Luck about the House, Kafoozalum, Keel Row.  Used for 'Thady You Gander'?

I don't play them together, but I'd agree.  Nae luck about the house, Kafoozalum and the Keel Row.

Likewise, they're great tunes. I'm Enjoying getting my head around a form of tune that's new to me and hearing the different take individual players are bringing to the theme. Cheers.

The last one is the Winter's Night Schottische, with some wrong notes and the third part missing...

(sequence is ABAC)

Just been away from a week, and what a delight to read the the backlog of posts and hear the Rabbits and Schotties.

A chance to plug one of my old schottishes, the  TELEPHONE one.

http://youtu.be/EYLSKS3rgfg

Notation here:
http://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/7e85e2bbd9d2a554c24693a8708d8fc06f155871

(I like Noteflight. Once you join up, for free, you can transpose easily, and play back the tune with your choice of instrument, and at any tempo)

For other noteflighters, here's my noteflight of the Rabbit which I think matches the melnet abc

I have the dots for "Beesting Pudding etc" if anybody wants them. They are on one of those sixties duplicated "magazines" which generally lasted for at least one issue. I think Bob Pegg was doing it - certainly somebody from Leeds anyway (ah! The blessed memories!)  ;D

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Yes, please! (Where's the emoticon for jumping-up-and-down-excitedly-with-your-hand-in-the-air when you need one?)

As you will no doubt guess from the new topic I have justed started as a result of your playing of this tune, I would also be interested in any other tunes from Sward'le (Swaledale) or Wensleydale.
