Probably the best folk music you’ll hear in Oxford… coming to the Quaker Meeting House on St Giles at 7pm this Friday 23rd February. The Owl Light Trio take a folk tune and weave harmonies and variations to create wizardry. Hope to see you there!
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
Dear Slow Sessionistas
I’m sorry it’s taken so long to update the website. I’ve got a queue of tunes to add but first my old music notation software has decided to stop updating… and when my computer software upgraded, it stopped working… so I’ve had to find a new option…. and then learn how to use it!
Anyway, at last Ille Bhig: nice short and punchy. Fun to play. Sorry so few listening links – we’ll have to make one ourselves.
Not an easy tune to spell or say (sounds like cavers (rhymes with ravers) of kircubree), but such a lovely to tune to play (although a bit tricky to learn)… I’m sorry to add such a difficult tune (in F) but very well worth the effort. Sounds great played slowly.. Hope you enjoy Cavers of Kirdcudbright!
