Mazurka a Clement was a proposal for TOTM in march but did not win :(.

So it is my newest.

Very much a work in progress: a brand new jig by bandmate Andrew Marcus, Rain Batteries.  It was written by a masterful piano accordionist who actually thinks chromatic runs are fun. And who has a full range of chords and accidentals.

 

Being an Anglo concertinist and limited in chords and accidentals, I'm finding this tune devilishly difficult.  Still a lot of smoothing out to do, and more figuring out what to do about chords I just don't have. I've left out a few notes from his original notation, especially in the concluding run of the B part.

 

Played on a Morse 30 button GD hybrid ango.

Gott, wie gross is deine Gute (bwv462)
 

which I came across here.  Still working on fleshing out an accompaniment.

Here's a song I've only recently learned, though it's been on my to-do list for years, ever since I came across the original sheet music in an antique shop.

The concertina (40-button Wheatstone Anglo) is back in the mix on this one, but obviously the song wouldn't be the same without it. In fact this is pretty essential repertoire.

Shiny Shoes, by our own Alan Day.

 

Maybe 10 years ago, I went with Alan to the session at The George in London and recorded most of it.  When I got back I promptly lost the recording and forgot a lot of what we played.

 

The other day I was going thru a bunch of old tapes and minidiscs and found it. And one of the first tunes we played at that session was this catchy little number by Alan.

 

The tape was noisy and there were hurdy gurdies and bombards making it hard to pick out the melody, so I'm not sure I reconstructed the tune properly. Alan, sorry if I butchered a great tune!

 

This might make a good TOTM candidate if we had dots!

Another recording with the Soundcloud app:  https://soundcloud.c...at-recorded-for

 

I found this browsing through Hardcore English, and knew I had heard it lots.

Very nice and spirited, Graham - love it!

Best wishes - Wolf
