Ciel ‘d Automne

Here is Andre Brunet’s lovely tribute to his father, which is Melodeon.net’s tune of the month for November 2020. I’m playing this in D on a D/G Castagnari Giasco.

Newly-weds Reel / Voyager’s Reel

A quick rip through these 2 tunes that I’ve known for years but never played out. Recorded for The Vaults Bar’s virtual session which looks like it’s going to be running for a while yet.

Quebecois reels popularised (in the UK anyway) by Chris Wood and Andy Cutting’s debut tape in 1990 or so.

Played on a Hohner 114 in G; it’s a bit clacky, but really very playable.

Nadieja played by Vivant

This mazurka was written by Stephane Delicq, whose music I’m very much into at the moment; learning up quite a few of his tunes. We haven’t recorded this on our CDs (yet) – who knows perhaps one day we will. If you’re interested in seeing what we have recorded visit www.vivantmusic.co.uk

Vas Y Mimile

Marc Perrone’s classic tune, and an absolute nightmare to learn. Another tune I’ve known for goodness knows how many years, but not actually played in earnest. Here we go! Played for the Vaults Bar lockdown session, October 2020. Not that I’d ever have the nerve to try this in a real session. It’s in 4 parts, (approx) structure, A-B-C-B-D-B-A-B.

Played on a Van der Aa Compact III in G/C

Eklunda Polska No 3

Recorded for the vaults lockdown session, 2020 – a traditional Swedish Polska. I make no claims as to accuracy of the Polska rhythm however – they’re a bit of a beast to master.

Played on a van der aa compact iii in G/C.
