Italian Rant

Hello!
This week I thought I do a tune that was playable on the standard three row chromatic nyckelharpa and the moraharpa. There might be a few of these coming up over the next little while. :)
So this week we have The Italian Rant. It's in Playford's Dancing Master, but is a tune dating back to the start of the 1600s from Italy. (Oddly enough!) Enjoy!

Rutebilen

Hello!
This week I chose to do a tune that I taught at Halsway before I started doing the #tunefridays. I dug it out to teach this week so here is the freshly filmed video! It's the run up to a very busy December, so no time for fancy video work!
Enjoy!

Älgknappenpolska

Hello!
This week we have a natty little polska as #tunefriday. It's playable on the säckpipa and also on the kontrabasharpa. The title translates as Elk Button - so it could be about a button made from elk horn.... or maybe it's about something totally different.... like eating too much mousse and having to undo your buttons. Which ever seems more plausible! (Sorry to all the vegetarians.)
Enjoy!

Hare's Maggot

Hello!
It's album launch week. We've spent almost a year producing our new album with Purcell's Polyphonic Party and the launch is tomorrow. So in celebration of this I'm going to do another tune from the album! Hare's Maggot.
It's a great dance and a great tune!
Enjoy!

Gånglåt i Sorg

Hello!
This week we have the saddest tune of all time, Gånglåt i Sorg after August Strömberg. I chose to play it on the pipes and then swapped out the two pipe parts for nyckelharpa parts to make it into a #tunefriday.
Enjoy!
