Tune sets I play in sessions sometimes.

Michael Turner’s Waltz – Session Set

A tune played for the 41st anniversary of the Vaults Bar session; we’re currently on lockdown, so this is published on the Vaults Bar online session group which has been running since lockdown on the 23rd March. As of 13 Sep 2020, it looks like it’ll be a while yet before the session returns fully. Until then, this is a favourite of mine, Michael Turner’s Waltz which I play frequently in the real session.

Played on a Castagnari Giasco I in D/G, in the key of G.

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?

Played on a Castagnari Mory in D/G.

Inisheer – Session Set

Another in the series of tunes I’m recording for the Vaults Bar virtual session while music sessions are locked down during the Covid 19 epidemic; each week, give or take, I upload one or more tunes or tune sets that I’d typically play down the session, in the key I would typical use. Play along! We’re in G.

This week, Inisheer by Thomas Walsh. This tune is played a lot around here. Played on the Castagnari Mory in D/G.

The Rose Tree / Duchess Dressed in Blue – Session Set

Another pair of tunes that I play fairly frequently in sessions recorded for the Vaults Bar virtual session. These have the distinct advantage of sitting perfectly on a standard 2 row D/G melodeon, but still have lots of musical possibilities. No extra basses, accidentals required.

Played on a Hohner D/G Pokerwork, during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020.

Si Bheag Si Mhor – Session Set

Although it’s just the one tune, I’d still class this as a session set – something I commonly play down the Vaults Bar and other sessions. It’s in D of course, and was recorded for the Vaults Bar virtual sessions during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Played on a Castagnari Mory in D/G.
