(Set dance) Is The Big Man Within? - Bb/F Concertina Solo.wmv :D

 

 

Hello, Leo! I learned this set dance from The Final Round by Kevin Joyce. It's an unusual Irish tune. A part is a slip jig and B part is a double jig! I love unusual Irish tunes.

Very good Tomo! I like that tune, I heard it before from Sean Ryan (the tin whistler). From listening your playing, I can tell that there is a difference from the way Sean Ryan plays it. I would need a confirmation of this, but I have the feeling that you are not playing a rhythm of double jig in the second part, If I'm not mistaken, you are playing a rhythm that is not ternary.

 

I think that for playing slip jig / double jig, you have two options: play the first part slower or play the second part faster.

 

Of course this is just my opinion, I would love to get more opinions on this because I'm not completely sure.

 

And Tomo, I also love unusual Irish tunes! I'm always trying to analyse them.

 

Another video I liked very much is the last one, thay guy is doing very well with the harmonica and concertina toguether. I subscribed to his videos straight away, his playing looks very promising, a future new player to the likes of Mick Kinsella and Rick Epping.

Hello, Fernando. Thank you for your reply! Although I have Minstrel's Fancy by Sean Ryan, I didn't notice that this tune is in the CD! Thanks! He certainly plays it without changing tempi.

 

I learned it from The Final Round by Kevin Joyce. He plays it, changing tempi (A part:113 / B part:69). So, he plays the B part just like a slow jig.

 

I don't know which playing is right, but I love both great recordings!

 

Cheers,

Tomoyuki

Thanks for the explanation Tomo! I see now! I don't know if there is one that is right. Personally I prefer the version that Sean Ryan plays, I suppose It's because the speed is the same in both parts, and they last the same.

 

Any more strange tunes let me know!

 

Cheers,

 

Fernando

Music For Morris Dancing - June 1994

 

... But this tune is totally unfamiliar to me. Anybody know what it is?

 

It's called the Blue-Eyed Stranger, and it's from the Fieldtown tradition of Cotswold.

Curiouser and curiouser. I don't know a lot of Fieldtown, but the "Blue-Eyed Stranger" in the Fieldtown chapter of the Bacon handbook is an entirely different tune (and similar to Bledington "Morningstar"). I don't see any tune in that chapter that resembles what we have here.

Take a look at the Headington version.

Take a look at the Headington version.

Actually, I'm now convinced it's Bucknell. Bacon bears this out (as it does Headington). But most convincing for Bucknell is that in the last moments of the video, we finally get a look at the Morris dancers, and it's the Juggler Meadow Morris Men, from Amherst, MA. They only do Bucknell.
