Month: July 2014

Abbots Bromley Horn Dance / Kindling

An unusual pairing of tunes for’s strange tune pairs theme of the month. The first is the tune known as Abbots Bromley Horn Dance tune, though it isn’t actually used as such by the Abbots Bromley Horn Dancers – they use any tune *but* that one! Other dance sides doing the horn dance use it a lot. The second comes from the English Acoustic Collective and their Morris Offspring collaboration; a tune played with John Dipper’s Dapple and Dobbin (recorded earlier on this channel!) – it’s by Robert Harbron, and called ‘Kindling’. Great tune Rob!

Played on a Castagnari Giasco I in D/G.

The Sussex Waltz

A mazurka’d implementation of this traditional English waltz, commonly played as a bourree in the style of Tim Van Eyken’s version. I think it makes a nicer mazurka 🙂

Played on a D/G Castagnari Giasco; tune of the month for July 2014.
