Thread Name: Tune Req: Out the Gap (Sharon Shannon)
Subject: RE: Anyone the title of this waltz?-Thanks!!
Thanks for this tune. I can play it on the piano now.
It sounds so naturally and authentically Cajun that I wonder if there really was a tune from the Seychelles Islands. I've tried to see (without success) if the islands were named after a French person named Seychelle. In that case, a tune named 'Chez Seychelles' for a local Cajun family would seem perfectly natural.
We may never know, so I'm going to spend my energy playing it instead.
