Mark and I are playing a concert in SMSG church, Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes MK11 1BD; 7.30pm on 9th June 2019. Here we are playing through one of our new pieces, the Siege of Guingamp.
A slowed down version of the Dorset 4 Hand Reel played on melodeon and violin by myself and my friend Mark Prescott. A spur of the moment recording to see what we could do with it, and for uploading as my contribution to melodeon.net’s tune of the month for April 2019.
I’m playing a Castagnari Mory in D/G; Mark’s playing… um, a violin!
Mark and I play as a duo, Vivant – our website is here: www.vivantmusic.co.uk
Vivant are Mark Prescott (violin) and Clive Williams (melodeon). This video is taken from our live concert at Stony Stratford St Mary and St Giles church in June 2013 – the sound is recorded live acoustically to minidisc from a microphone in the audience (no PA system) and has had no audio effects added to it – what you hear is how it sounded to our audience!
This piece, Vivre, was composed by Stephane Delicq.
