An Dro

Hello!
This weeks #tunefriday is a French An Dro. Works wonderfully on the standard three row chromatic nyckelharpa and also the older kontrabasharpa. To find out more about the kontrabasharpa watch the video! It's a nice simple tune, good for getting the brain back into shape after too much indulgence over Christmas!! We were on the road a lot over December, so the video was made as and when I could with whatever I had at the time!
Enjoy!

Jul, jul strålande jul

Hello!
It's Christmas, so time for a Christmassy quartet. I'm on the road for the whole of December, so to get this #tunefriday up I've had to make do with the recording room as backdrop. The duvet and washing make good baffles. :) Enjoy!

On Christmas Night - Sussex Carol

Hello!
As we draw ever closer to Christmas here is a tune we have on our Christmas album, On Christmas Night All Christians Sing - Sussex Carol. We perform it in two different keys, mostly as a transport to get into a different key to play a tune at the end. :)

Mary Free - Christmas Carol

Hello!
This week we have a new carol that we have in our Christmas show called Mary Free. We videoed it for Halsway Manor's Advent Videos. The video is a quartet, but not just me this time, it's me and Jonny. :D
The melody of the carol is quite short, but we have a second melody that Jonny wrote, it works nicely as a B part and then they fit on top of each other too. Perfect.

Nu Är Det Jul Igen

Hello!
It's December, so it's time fro some Christmas music! So here is a typical Swedish Christmas song. I know it as a drinking song, but that might be the Easter version that I sing, rather than it actually being a drinking song! Nu är det jul Eigen! Now it's Christmas again.

Enjoy!
