Unknown Breton Tune,

OK folks, what’s this called? I’ve known it “all my life” and when I pick a melodeon up, and press a few keys on the pull, this comes out. It just plays so naturally. I think it’s probably a Breton song or intro to a gavotte, or similar, but I have no idea beyond that. Any ideas?

Played on a D/G Castagnari Mory.

Unknown Waltz (Leveret, Forms)

A lovely tune from Leveret’s latest album (as of May 2023), Forms. A traditional tune, and listed as ‘unknown waltz’ such in whichever manuscript Leveret found it from, rather than a tune I simply don’t know the name of. Also recorded by Sam Sweeney, in a rather more ornate form, by Sam Sweeney on his wonderful Solo EP., theme of the month for May 2023, ‘Tunes that start with U’.

Played on a Hohner Preciosa Bb/Eb, in Eb.
