Month: April 2020

The Canal in October / Speed the Plough – Session Set

Recorded both for the Vaults Bar virtual session, and the theme of the month ‘Favourite tunes’. These are the tunes I will normally play if we get into playing the last thing at the end of a session. Good, fun tunes that everyone can join in, but have something about them too. The gap at the end of the last time through of Speed the Plough is so I can shout ‘out’ at the end, by the way – playing and talking are hard 🙂

Recorded on a Castagnari Giasco I in D/G.

The Woodcock / The Kerfunken

2 irish jigs played in a not-very-irish style. Great tunes both. Arrangement very much influenced by the version Chris Wood and Andy Cutting used to play, a *long* time ago.

Played on a D/G Castagnari Giasco I

Schottische Adele Blanc-Sec

Another quick contribution for the Virtual Vaults Bar Session, and also for’s theme of the month. This is Frederic Paris’ schottische Adele Blanc-Sec, played on a Van der Aa melodeon in G/C (so we’re in Am).

The Railway’s tune of the month for April 2020 (and also for our weekly virtual session for the Vaults Bar Stony Stratford) is this little jig, ‘The Railway’. Played on a Hohner Preciosa in Bb/Eb.

A quick recording for our Virtual Vaults Bar Session. Also a favourite tune, for the theme of the month for April 2020 🙂 Recorded on phone by the fair Liz, and played on a Hohner Club I in C/F.
