Month: November 2019

Hector the Hero played by Vivant (Mark Prescott and Clive Williams)

Mark and I recorded this last night while having a run through of tunes; I’m on the Castagnari Mory in D/G, although I’m playing it in single voice (I usually use either both high reeds, or all 3 reeds).

Derriere les Carreaux

A slightly different version of Frederic Paris’ schottische, which is tune of the month at melodeon.net this month (November 2019). Lovely tune, been playing it for *years* which makes it hard to find anything different to do with it!

Here played on a Hohner Preciosa 12 bass in Bb/Eb. (we’re on the inside row, so we’re playing in F minor).

If you want to hear how I’d play it normally, here I am playing it live in concert with my mate Mark Prescott a few years back.
