Month: September 2011

“Oh Joe” Bourree

A reworking of the East Anglian polka ‘Oh Joe the Boat is Going Over’ into a french style bourree. This mostly involves changing the music to mixolydian mode and playing with a bourree style. Played on a Hohner 1930’s Club in C/F (so the tune comes out in C Mixolydian). Tune of the Month for September 2011.

Bouchard Quadrille (48 Bar)

For’s Theme of the Month, September 2011 -48 bar jigs. A version of the Bouchard Quadrille, turned into a 48 bar jig by sticking the B music from Marche Duverner on the end. One of the catchiest, earwormiest tunes I know.

I assume these are traditional, though I expect Mr Bouchard probably had some role in either writing it or popularising it!

Played on a Castagnari Mory in D/G.
