WHITBY FOLK WEEK 2012

Recommended Posts

No mention of the Isle of Man?

 

I have put a few Manx tunes in the Tune-O Tron, have a go at Peter o'Tavy. It is normally played a tad slower than the midi file. Hope to catch up with the session this year.

Any chance of a quick link? - not sure how to find tunes in Tune-O-tron - just able to paste abc's in it to "submit"

 

But I found this:

 

this is perhaps my favourite Manx sound

smile.gif not music related but .... the new Sainsburys supermarket in Whitby opened today, it's on the A172 next to Homebase, just out of town past Eskdale School heading towards Hawsker.

Lidl and the Co-op have been giving out £5 off vouchers to try to keep customers biggrin.gif

The obvious Greek one is "Misirlou":

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misirlou

 

(1927)

(1930)

 

lots of versions from Dick Dale and the Deltones but I can't find the 1963 original on YouTube any more

 

Score and MIDI on one of my blogs:

 

http://octunes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/misirlou.html

 

Sometimes done in D rather than E, but I think E will suit more of the instruments we'll have.

from RUSSIA to Lidl Whitby via Sainsbury

Great news and much music related!

"If food be the muzack of lurv":

 

then the Coop in the harbour was not only despised for its high prices by starving musicians but even the staff and locals - they told us so. It's like the few petrol stations - it was the highest price we had ever seen outside motorway stations at the time, and locals had no option as the nearest competition was over in Scarborough.

 

Only found the Lidl (above town: Stakesby Road

Whitby North Yorkshire/YO21 1HS - with parking) at the end of the week last year and it was a belated relief = and the croissant and pain au chocolat from its new bakery were excellent and very cheap.

Oh, and we only found Poundland down Flowergate (

45 Flowergate YO21 3BB - limited parking in front)on the Thursday.. bacon at a quarter the price of the Coop.

 

 

I suppose one could now have a song about France's first cheapo store, Le Bon marché, (even it is from Québec!)for the Eurosession

 

and it takes us nicely to Gazprom and the Russians trying to sell cheaper gas in the UK(!) with a flashback to Soviet realism getting into the 21st century music advert scene (LoL)

 

and of course that takes us naturally to the gas of Siberia and the Siberian Sakhalin song by The Siberian Russian Folk Choir

 

and where would we be without a banyan (Russian squeezebox or two) and "There is no Russia without its forests"

words:

3. Нет без леса России,

 

Без снегов и озёр.

 

Нет без сумерек синих

 

И без розовых зорь.

 

Нет России без луга,

 

Где от маков светло,

 

Где ромашковой вьюгой

 

Землю всю замело.

(Н.Дементьев)

 

(Rough -!!-- translation

 

 

There is no Russia without its forests,

 

Without its snow and lakes.

 

Without its blue tinted twilight

 

And the rose light of its dawn.

 

No Russia without its meadows,

 

And their shining poppies

 

And snowstorms of chamomile petals

 

And no Russia lest all snowflake powdered

 

(more if that tickled your fancy...

That was the tune that kicked off the Turkish tango craze.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IrB7_nU4SA

 

The orchestra is playing in a punchy Latin American style, the singer is smoothing it out a bit - I think it works better with more aggro as an instrumental.

Mazi - the wound of my heart ( is clearly the dark version of George Garside's Middle Earth regular workshop piece... Daisy, Daisy.......!

 

I like yr snappy midi version Jack and, as we have the space at the Resolution ( we ALSO had dancing last year: for those who ain't been) I will provide the rose and you can give us the moves across the dance floor. :D

IRISH/SCOTTISH

Danny Boy

DannyBoy Whistle letters and score and lyrics in KeyofG attached for printing or your video, tablet, kindle, wongle etc

 

 

Although initially written to a tune other than "Londonderry Air", the words to "Danny Boy" were penned by English lawyer and lyricist Frederic Weatherly in 1910. After his sister-in-law in the United States sent him a copy of "Londonderry Air", in 1913, Weatherly modified the lyrics of "Danny Boy" to fit the rhyme and meter of "Londonderry Air".[2]

 

Jane Ross of Limavady is credited with collecting the melody of "Londonderry Air" in the mid-19th century from a local fiddle player.

 

for bass accompaniment

Mazi - the wound of my heart

 

"The past is a wound in my heart". Google's Turkish dictionary isn't good on archaisms.

 

He got stood up. The storyline is basically "Annie McKelvey" with added tango melodrama.

Gluggle? - Moi?!

 

Stood up? Absolutely!

I was working from the Turkic, based on the Sanskrit root, which clearly shows that Genghis Khan sang this song of complaint when his latest bird failed to turn up (they were due for a night out on the town) at the 33 bus stop outside the mosque in Samarkand . That's why he massacred the locals the next day. :ph34r:

Crikey chaps, is this a session you're preparing for, or a round of the popular parlour game My Tune Is More Obscure Than Your Tune?

 

Mind you it wouldn't be the first session that's turned into a game of that ...

One person's obscure is somebody else's oh-god-not-again.

 

The French tunes played at Whitby (many of which you've transcribed, more power to your elbow) are fairly exotic to me - I've never heard them played anywhere else, don't have any recordings of them, and didn't have any in a book until I got "Bal Folk" a few months ago. I haven't been to France much and the only two concerts I've been to there were Afro-rock and Algerian. The tunes I've linked to are things I've known for between 20 and 40 years.

 

Has anyone got a link to the "Shottish urbain" somebody played last year?

I wasn't there, but I'd guess it was this one by Gregory Jolivet, who amongst other things is the new-ish gurdy player with Blowzabella ... Schottish Urbane ...
