Ray suggested the beautiful tune, Flatworld, and I think we might enjoy it. There are several links to places to hear it on the tune page… and if you find more good ones, please do add a comment of a link. We’ve made it the tune of the month for the 1st of July, so we’ll have to get busy this month!
Alex has done some stirling work comparing versions (of which there are many) and finding one that might suit us and even finding some places to hear it on youtube. So time to learn a new tune… Have a try of Soldier’s Joy!

If you agree to steward (no experience necessary and training will be given for more advanced roles if you would like them) for fours hours, you gain a free day ticket to the festival. If you help for eight hours, then you have a wristband for the whole weekend.
The timetable for the weekend is now available, so when you have signed up, you will receive an email asking for your preferred shifts so you can choose your time to fit around your preferred concerts.
And don’t forget Oxford Slow Session has a slot too… Come along to the Chequers Pub (High St) 5pm – 8pm on Sunday evening, 22nd April 2018. Do join in!
Just in case you have the time to learn a new tune (ha!), Tommy People’s Reel is well worth learning. Really lovely tune although tricky to make it solid and sound easy. Hope you like it.
Sorry about the link to the wrong pdf. I think it’s fixed now. And I’ve managed to update the pdf of A-Z of all tunes for printing… so that gets you all 54 tunes!
Many thanks to those who found my error.
Finally now that Finale songwriter is working again (phew), I can quit struggling with new programmes and spend the time looking for good links to listen to… I have been meaning to post up these two tunes since last summer as they are fun to play (at any speed). I have some more to post too as I try to catch up on the backlog… so hope to post some more next week…. meanwhile, I hope you enjoy these two:
La Sansonette and
