The Tomasson Girls

Hello!
Tune Friday - a hornpipe today. The Tomasson Girls. One from the archives, so the tune is just played through at full speed. A teaching video will end up on the website at some point! (Especially if it's asked for in the comments. :) )
Enjoy!

The Inverness Gathering


Hello!
Tune Friday! The Inverness Gathering. It's a strathspey and one of the tunes that made me think that schottises and strathspeys had the same roots. You can definitely schottis to this!
Enjoy!

The Quantox Reel

Hello!
Tune Friday!! Today it's a reel. I originally wrote this tune as the procession tune at Halsway Manor, but it was too hard for the beginners, so I ended up writing The Halsway Parade instead. But I still love this tune! So here it is for you.
:)
Enjoy!
