There are many versions of Inisheer in circulation, but I think David’s version is more well known than Jane’s. You can play whichever you like as they work together. I’ve also added some places to hear the tune on Youtube. I think we will have fun playing it and introducing perhaps some new and interesting variations and harmonies ourselves. Hope to see you soon.
Ceilidh in Wolvercote Village Hall, Sat 7th March 7.30pm (doors)
If you haven’t danced to the tunes of the Dirty Big Canal Band, you have a treat in store. And for that have done so before (in St Barnabas Church), I’m sure you are keen to come again. Music provided by Owl Light Trio combined with half of Xogera and Jon Fletcher (who is also playing this 8pm Sunday 23rd February at The White Hart, Godstow Road, Wolvercote, Oxford OX2 8NY free admission (donations)).
Tickets for the ceilidh can be bought here: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/494172

The fabulous musicians of the Aerialists (all the way from Toronto) and the Owl Light Trio are playing in the Tap Social Pub on Wednesday 29th January at 7.30pm (doors). Tickets available at https://www.wegottickets.com/event/491633
Hope to see you there!
David alerted me to the poetry festival in Woodstock from 15- 17th November which finishes with music and poetry including the legendary Peggy Seeger…
Unless you’re a dancer at St Barnabas ceilidhs, you might not have heard this tune, The Flying Tweed, before, but it’s a really good tune to dance to and I think it is one of Jane Griffith’s best. I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve managed to make a playlist on YouTube on most of our Slow Session tunes, so if you feel like familiarising yourself with our tunes (or reminding yourself of old favourites), have a try. They appear as a handy list so that you can scroll through them quite quickly. However, I’ve only put one version of each tune on the list – so if you’d like to see another version be on the list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and make an suggestion for an alternative! Hope it’s useful.
