Hey Jim,

 

At my dance last weekend we played Parry Sound Reel (G) and Jingle Bells (D) in a set with something.

 

First waltz... It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, last waltz... Silent Night

 

Nice! At the Glen Echo Open Band this month we did Silver Bells as the first waltz - with one of the fiddlers doing a great job singing it.

Very nice!

 

I was trying to figure out how we could slip Auld Lang Syne into a contra dance set for a dance we're doing on Jan 2.

 

 

Just for fun and made very quickly (sorry for the kick, my recorder was on the ground). Test in 6/8 rythm and "polka" rythm...

That's wonderful.  We're planning on putting it at the end of a dance set.

Better late than never! 

 

Here's my first attempt at recording something on my 64 key Maccann. As you can hear, it needs a tune, so apologies for interesting harmonies (unfortunately, the instrument's condition is no excuse for my playing...). I've been playing on and off for around 6 months, but only recently got an instrument of my own. 

 

Anyway, here is the Sheffield carol Jacob's Well - https://soundcloud.com/olliekingbox/jacobs_well

Very nice arrangement. And 'late' doesn't mean anything in TOTM land!
