Auburn Mary - a new tune for 20 button anglo, harmonic style


Recommended Posts

 
I love how an anglo concertina can remind you of a harmonica (not surprisingly I guess!)  This one reminds me of old westerns/cowboy movies, where someone is looking out on a vast landscape with long horizons - playing their harmonica! - maybe with a good dash of Copeland - and then ambling off on their horse (complete with horse clip-clopping music..you know the sort I mean?)
 
It's funny because this new tune is actually based on Scottish folklore (maybe not so funny when you consider how influential Scottish music has been on the American sound).  Not only Scottish folklore and American overtones, but also a poem recited with hints of an Australian accent and set against the English landscape of Worcestershire :P

I love this! I am drawn to the concertina because it reminds me a little of the harmonica my Dad played while I was growing up in the Arizona desert. This piece is evocative of western movie sound tracks, and the pairing with the poem works beautifully.  Lovely, thank you!
