  1. Glad they were at least a little helpful! I learned something too! When I looked at my 'personal tune book' I found ~10 tunes which either had the title 'Trollpolska', (or some variant), or which were flagged as coming from Dalarna. All were in Dm, except one. Also, I wasn't aware that some Irish players have that non-standard layout on the first 2 buttons on the RHS accidentals row, We learn something every day. Thank you!
  2. I'm guessing that you mean what I would call a C/G? You seem unsure about the correspondence between layouts across the C/G and Bb/F configurations? I'm attaching layout diagrams for my 30-button Wolverstone C/G and 30-button Lachenal Bb/F semi-miniature instruments. Both are (I think) more or less standard layouts. Sorry about the different format - I haven't got around to creating a Professor McCann diagram for the Wolverstone yet... You will see that the aR1 button is C#/Eb on the C/G instrument, and is a (corresponding) B/C# on the Bb/F instrument. I'm not aware that a C#/C# button is common? The C/G Marcus Traveller has a single accidental (in the aR1 position), and this is also C#/Eb. (*) It looks as if your instrument has a 'non-standard' layout on the Right hand side accidentals row? Do Marcus do a Bb/F then? I didn't know that. I hope those layout diagrams help.
  3. There are four short YouTube videos dealing with Scholers which may help you learn a little more about these instruments. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbPw0yR19zM&index=1&list=PL777D961E7BDD0215 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88yCVla_Djg&index=2&list=PL777D961E7BDD0215 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uvs4-ANFuq8&index=3&list=PL777D961E7BDD0215 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anBj1hibG0o&index=4&list=PL777D961E7BDD0215 They are no longer in production and I think that later versions have metal action, and some models have triple-reeds...
  4. Nice idea, but it'll never get off the ground. Morris is 'English' and therefore unacceptable to the education authorities and to the BBC in these 'diverse' and 'multi-cultural' days. In Scotland 'Scottish Country Dancing' is (or was?) part of the educational syllabus - sensible people, the Scotch. In any case, Morris is irredeemably 'racist', see: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/01/08/morris-dancers-forced-abandon-performance-accused-racism-threatened/ and a large number of similar posts about this incident. My barber showed me film of this on his 'phone at the time (2017). Very scary. I see that at least one festival appears to have followed the rush to P.C. acceptability, and banned 'blacking-up'. Pity.
  5. I luv it wen the speling polise get gowing. Larf, I neerly dyed...
  6. Is that the promotional blitz which involves sending unsolicited emails to folks who don't really want 'em? Just wondering... TCA
  7. A test to demonstrate functionality...
