Month: February 2011

Kettle Drum / Glory of the West

Here we have 2 Playford tunes (i.e. tunes from 17th century England, collected and published by John Playford), Kettle Drum and Glory of the West. I learned these off the playing of Chris Wood, and a fantastic twin fiddle version of these can be found on his album with JF Vrod, Crossing.

Played on a Streb electronic melodeon with unisonoric basses tuned to A/D (I think) – the tune itself comes out in Em.

Part of’s Theme of the Month for February 2011, Playford Tunes.
