Melodeon.net’s theme of the month is tunes that didn’t win a previous tune of the month poll. There’s some great tunes amongst that lot, including this which I learned off my mate Alan Day who plays a terrific concertina version. I’m playing this on an A/D Castagnari Lilly, in D.
A Paul Sartin composition, learned at least 3rd hand via Jim Sawyer and Anahata, is this rather fantastic tune. Melodeon.net’s tune of the month for June 2018. Played on a Castagnari Lilly in A/D (so we’re in A here).
This tune was written by Lynn Tocker, a fine piano accordion player from Northumberland. A search of youtube should find her version… which is better than this one 🙂 Played as part of melodeon.net’s theme of the month for January 2017. “Nautical tunes” on a A/D Castagnari Lilly
OK, and we’re back. Stephane Durand’s famous schottische – melodeon.net’s tune of the month for January 2017. Played on a Castagnari Lilly in A/D (in D).
