Ae Fond Kiss

Hello!
I know I'm in the middle of Moraharpa January - but it was Burns on the 25th (yesterday) so I absolutely had to quickly record this melody. It's the original tune for Burn's Ae Fond Kiss - Rory Dall's Port. It's a lovely little tune. In an effort to get this trio recorded quickly the audio is live off the mic at the time of recording and the trio parts are quite simple, so I've uploaded the full trio for you. :)
Um tidying the room? Nope, not that either!
I probably should have been doing other work - but this caught me today!
As always if you like my videos, do think about donating and subscribing on youtube!
So, Happy Burns and Enjoy!

Skäggigtpolskan

Hello!
After a brief pause after Christmas we're started again! Time for a month of moraharpa tunes. So here is the first one. Skäggigtpolskan - the beardy polska. Goes like this! The dots at the bottom of the page are in two different keys. The one in D minor is a nice place to play it on the nyckelharpa and the other in the key of G minor is how I play it on the Moraharpa.

I do have a favour to ask - if you like the videos please subscribe to them on youtube. If you really, really like them you might like to use the donate button on the side of this page!
