A quick run through of this on the Van der Aa melodeon in G/C for the Vaults Bar Virtual Session; we’re in C here. Recorded during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020.

Roslin and Adama

This piece is from Bear McCreary’s score for the 2004 TV version of Battlestar Galactica. It wasn’t written with the melodeon in mind, so I’ve had to work quite hard to make it fit. It’s a lovely piece that fits on the piano too.

Played on a Van der Aa melodeon in G/C for melodeon.net’s theme of the month for July 2020, TV music.

The Guinness Waltz

Melodeon.net’s tune of the month for June 2020 is Tor Albrigtsen’s waltz; here played on a dry tuned 1920’s Hohner in G/C. It seems nicely suited to the tune I think

Schottische Adele Blanc-Sec

Another quick contribution for the Virtual Vaults Bar Session, and also for melodeon.net’s theme of the month. This is Frederic Paris’ schottische Adele Blanc-Sec, played on a Van der Aa melodeon in G/C (so we’re in Am).

La Mal-Aimable

Melodeon.net tune of the month for January 2020 is this french waltz written by Jean-Christophe Lequerre. Sits quite nicely on a 2 row 8 bass instrument – in this case a Hohner Liliput conversion in G/C.

Melodeon.net’s tune of the month for Dec 2019 is this classic 32 bar jig; always a favourite of mine. Here played in C on a G/C Hohner Liliput converted by Kay Albrecht.

Frost and Snow

A seasonal offering for Melodeon.net’s theme of the month for December 2019 – Christmas and Winter. This is an irish hornpipe found in O’Neill’s, but quite obscure. I learned it off a bluegrass christmas album. Played in D minor on a G/C Hohner Liliput.
