Rosbif Waltz played by Clive Williams and Mark Prescott (Vivant)

This tune comes from the playing of Rosbif, a band who introduced english audiences to traditional french music in the 1980’s, producing 2 classic albums. They simply call this “Waltz”, and it comes from the playing of Philippe Krumm, and his band Paris Centre. Generally, it tends to be referred to as the Rosbif Waltz, or sometimes Philippe Krumm’s.

We recorded this on the spur of the moment as my contribution to April 2019’s melodeon.net theme of the month – Runner Ups – tunes that didn’t manage to win the tune of the month poll.

I’m playing this on a 1930’s Hohner Club in C/F; Mark on a violin that he got many years ago, travelled round the world with, and done many, many, gigs with. It’s not the violin in the picture!
