Something For The Weekend?

But I may know it as Con Cassidy's - confusing isn't it.

 

 

Never in the field of traditional music has one tune apparently become known by so many different names. :blink:

P.S. Pete. Your large collection seems to get a bit 'windy' towards the end; and thank you for including my Gardener's Delight jig in it. :)

You're welcome Chris. :D

 

This tune has something about it but I'm not quite sure what. Fascination of the horrible possibly!

Any connection with The Bell Savage Inn do you think?

 

Yes, I would think so! Perhaps La Belle Savage was a noted young lady who appeared at the Bell Savage Inn Theatre, or more likely at that period in time a young man noted for playing female parts in the plays. I've bookmarked the page so I can read it in full later.

 

Nice to see you posting here Dirge :D , I was afraid I'd offended you. :o

God no.

 

I noticed the name because I've come across it before in an old book; it was used by Cassells as a trade mark in their early days because they started up business on the site of the Belle Savage pub.

Right then, I just had to post this one because of the name! It's also an unusual tune and will give sight readers a bit of a work out ...

Here it is then. "By Request". Not a tune I would have added to this thread I have to say, titles can be a little misleading. It's quirky but not in a good way. :rolleyes:

Damn. Does this mean I have to transcribe it before I go to bed ? :unsure: It's been a long day!

This one is distinctly odd and I don't know if I actually like it at all. 'Tis quirky though.

I just have to post this one, it's a cracking little jig plumbed from the depths of an ancient manuscript and destined to take the session scene by storm once a few players pick it up. Remember where you saw it first!
