March of the Daffodils

Hello!
This week I am uploading a beginner tune, so that I have it as a resource post workshop. It's very, very simple and works in canon.
Enjoy!

Sture's Schottis


Hello!
Another tune played pretty much at every session at Halsway Manor. It's a great tune for bow control and the semi-quaver/dotted quaver rhythm.
Enjoy!

Byss-Calle Number 32

Hello!
Happy New Year! I thought it was time to make sure I had posted up videos of tunes that are almost always played at sessions over here in the UK. This one is the greatest of them all - we all play this tune. Polska after Byss-Calle number 32. It's mighty.
Enjoy!
