London Pride

Recommended Posts

With all the talk of "Pride Month" in June, seems only fitting to showcase the tune "London Pride", a Morris tune from Longborough that to my knowledge has nothing to do with LGBTTQQIAAP etc., but is just a cracking great tune played by John Kirkpatrick on the Albion Country Band's "Battle of the Field" album. Notated here for Anglo concertina. Enjoy!

It is, indeed, a lovely tune. Far be it from me to argue with the mighty JK, but this version seems to be closer to Idbury Hill (Bledington) than the Longborough tune. The Black Book also gives an Oddington dance of the name London Pride, but no tune. However, neither Idbury Hill nor London Pride have "slows", so JK must have invented the C music!
