From Night Til Morn

This tune is melodeon.net’s Tune of the Month for July 2020; a lovely trad English tune. I’ve been experimenting with video editing recently – so it’s a duet!

Played on a Hohner Pokerwork in D/G, and mixed with the Olive video editor.

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.

Orange in Bloom / Ville de Quebec – Session Set

Another in a short series of session tune sets being played as part of our local session at Stony Stratford’s Vaults Bar virtual group. Am recording (gradually) each of the tune sets I typically play at sessions – the repertoire is a little different to what i normally play on my channel, since being in a sensible key and good to join in with is important.

These 2 waltzes are Orange In Bloom (aka Sherbourne Waltz), and Chris Wood’s tune Ville de Quebec.

Played on a Hohner Pokerwork in D/G

Vivre played by Vivant

Another tune from our June 2020 lockdown music morning where we played a few tunes on Horsefair Green in Stony Stratford together. That won’t make a lot of sense if you’re watching this 10 years in the future, but right now, we are bang in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, and are keeping 2 metres apart from each other, as is the rest of the country. Strange times. The tune is Vivre, written by Stephane Delicq.

La Boite a Frissons

I learned this tune a *long* time ago, and still enjoy playing it. I don’t normally play it “out” though. It’s a Jean Blanchard fast waltz, played in Em on a Castagnari Mory in D/G, and played for both the Vaults Bar virtual session and melodeon.net theme of the month “Minor Tunes”.

Molinara / Flatworld

Another of a series of tune sets that I play in sessions that I’m recording every week or so for the Vaults Bar virtual session. I used to play these 2 with GIG CB, and indeed they’re on their first CD “Giant!” (recorded 20+ years ago!).

These are waltzes in Em (played on a D/G Castagnari Mory) written by Jon Swayne and Andy Cutting respectively. Flatworld is pretty much “traditional” now, of course.
