A lovely french mazurka written by french gurdy player Gilles Chabenat. A gorgeous tune, and melodeon.net’s tune of the month for July 2019. Here it’s being played on a Bb/Eb Hohner Preciosa in C minor. Normally, it’s played in D minor I think.

I’ve just learned this off my violin playing friend Mark Prescott – it’s full name is I believe Lucy Farr’s barndance. Not necessarily written by Lucy, but from her repertoire. Simple, but so effective.

This tune is an english traditional tune dug up from obscure manuscripts by Becky Price and featured on Boldwood’s album ‘Glory of the West’. I think it’s a cracking tune. Played here on a 12 bass Bb/Eb Hohner Preciosa in C minor, but it fits fine on a standard 8 bass box too. Part of melodeon.net’s theme of the month for January 2019; tunes from the British Isles.
I wrote this a couple of weeks ago on piano, and it transcribes nicely on melodeon too – it’s a 5 time waltz played here in C minor on a Bb/Eb Hohner Preciosa. Part of melodeon.net’s theme of the month for December 2018, Christmas/Wintery/Festive tunes etc.
A tune that goes by many names and found throughout Europe, but is known in the UK as ‘An Italian Rant’, which is it’s name in Playford’s Dancing Master. Melodeon.net’s tune of the month for December 2018.
