“Oh Joe” Bourree

A reworking of the East Anglian polka ‘Oh Joe the Boat is Going Over’ into a french style bourree. This mostly involves changing the music to mixolydian mode and playing with a bourree style. Played on a Hohner 1930’s Club in C/F (so the tune comes out in C Mixolydian). Tune of the Month for September 2011.

3 French Waltzes

3 Waltzes, played as part of’s Theme of the Month August 2010 – “Tunes from France”.

1) Pirouette, written by the late, great Stephane Delicq
2) L’amant de Saint Jean, written by Emile Carrera
3) Les Flots du Danube, written by Iosef Ivanovici, which makes it a Romanian tune. Oops. Never knew that until tonight when I thought it might be polite to credit the composer and looked into it!

Played on a Hohner Club C/F melodeon (all the tunes are in D minor).
