Bang Your Frog on the Sofa

I first heard this on an excellent new CD by English concertina player Robin Beech, and wondered how it would work on the Anglo. The intriguingly named "Bang Your Frog on the Sofa" was written by Will Harmon, and I suppose if it's representative of a genre, it could be labeled Irish. Whatever, it's a lovely tune. Here played on a 30 button Jeffries G/D Anglo.

Robin Beech used to come to NESI. I don’t think I’ve seen him since the Bucksteep Manor days.

 

Of course I remember him from Bucksteep - but he was also at CHiminey Corners as recently as 5 or 6 years ago.  I remember because he was the only musician who wanted to play Horizonto, one of my favorites!

Will Harmon is a writer, editor, fiddler, fiddle tutor, pie maker, mountain biker and who-knows-what-all out of Montana, USA who fiddles a lot in the Irish style. He's composed several interesting tunes along the way. Here's someone starting a set with that tune and almost riding it off the rails. 😊

"someone?" 😁

 

The tune reminds me of Naragonia's Hellebore, which you, Jim, may also want to tackle...
