Southdowns Jig

Alan Day

Recommended Posts

I first heard this tune years ago played by Roger Watson, and later by Dave Prebble, but I finally managed to get it down from John Percy, who sent me this recording of Jim Harding playing it:




Also my own efforts, on melodeon and anglo, recorded for the melodeon.net TOM.


It's a tune which I think greatly benefits from being played with a bit of subtlety, which Alan of course achieves.

A first concertina tune for me played on cg 30 button Anglo from Chris Algar. I'm a melodeon player really so this was a lovely new experience finding out that the concertina has so many options for arrangement etc. Very excited to be learning this instrument now if I can find the time to do so. Bit of hesitation and lack of left hand dexterity but a good reminder about learning an instrument. I liked this tune as a starter because it fitted so well. Apologies if not quite as written but done on memory. Looking forward to listening to those on here now :)
