A Surfeit of Lampreys

Just learned this for the Vaults Bar lockdown session; trying to expand my repertoire a little. This fantastic tune was written by Maartin Allcock, and was played when he was in Fairport Convention. There’s a great version of him playing it in 2017 at Cropredy, shortly before he passed away – here, on Fairport’s channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLjvfIMYeNM

Lake Arthur

Another recording for the Vaults Bar lockdown virtual session; this is a tune I used to play quite a few years ago in a local barndance band. It’s traditional, but learned from the Chipolata 5 album, Skinless, which I think was released about 1999.

Parson’s Farewell

A quick recording for Melodeon.net’s theme of the month for October 2020, Jobs and Occupations. This tune is one of the classic playford tunes from England, Parson’s Farewell. Played on a Castagnari Mory in D/G (so we’re in E minor)

The History Man

Another piece played for the Vaults Lockdown online session. It’s by Andy Cutting, of course and another of his pieces that’s dropped into the trad repertoire.

Mrs Saggs – Session Set

Another tune for the virtual Vaults Bar session during the Covid 19 ‘happening’ in August 2020 where I’m recording one by one each of the sets I’m quite likely to play down the session. A lovely air written by Chris Wood, 30 years ago. Where does the time go?
