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 email@example.com and make an suggestion for an alternative! Hope it’s useful.
Two tricky and one easy tune to learn by heart, and all fun to play. I’m hoping that the way I’ve written them out both makes sense and makes them easier to to understand and learn, but I’m not convinced (I have alternatives if necessary!). But listen to the links and enjoy some new tunes and hopefully we’ll get to play them soon.
Johsefin’s waltz is a lovely tune I’ve learned from joining a slow session in Skye when we were there for fiddle camp in July and I thought we would enjoy it too… Lots of places on Youtube to hear it and it’s clearly travelled across the world and there are many sessions where it is played! See you soon.
