Month: January 2015

Down to the Beach

Theme of the month for January 2015 is ‘Tunes with no name’, and here we have a tune learned off the playing of Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron – never heard this before, and no idea where it’s come from, or what it’s called. It’s shaped like a morris jig, but it also has a quirky edge that Quebecois stuff often has.

Played on a Hohner Preciosa in Bb/Eb.

Thanks to Sam Sweeney in the comments below; this is identified as ‘Down to the Beach’, written by Rob Harbron. What a tune.

Haste to the Wedding played on Electronic Melodeon

A somewhat unusual melodeon version of Haste to the Wedding, played on a Streb electronic melodeon plugged into an iPad via iRig Midi, and running the midi processor ThumbJammer on it. I’ve gone for the string quartet version here 🙂

This is a single take, no overdubbing – it’s all done by using the melodeon’s treble, chords and bass.’s tune of the month for January 2015.
