Is this possible to be played on a 20 button Anglo concertina? If so is the music somewhere I could see for the concertina? Thanks Ron

There are quite a few tarantellas from different places in southern Italy and Sicily.  All of them will fit a 20-button anglo but none of them is a wedding dance.

Maybe I have it wrong. This is the song

Want to try it on a 20 button anglo if possible but need music. Thanks Ron

Try a Google search for "wedding tarantella score" and then look at the images. Several scores will be displayed, but most, if not all, need to be paid for.

As far as I can tell, the music is in Am with a couple of G#'s. I am not sure if you have G# on your box but you might be able to fudge it.

Don.

That's the Neapolitan Tarantella aka Tarantella Napolitana.  Like all tarantellas it's a ritual exorcism dance in its origin.

 

I've got a version on my website here: http://www.campin.me.uk/.  Look in the Edinbal files - ABC or PDF.  As Don says you can fake the G sharps (use the E below instead).

Thanks very much. As I get better I'll give it a try. Ron
