Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Redwing - East Anglian Song and Tune
The bit in between the two main "Redwing" themes that he plays is not part of the original tune - certainly not a middle eight 'cos "Redwing: just has two themes to it. I reckon it's another tune sandwiched in between to break it up a bit.
I can see why "Redwing" would be popular at a tunes sessions - the A theme twice through then the B theme twice through. The original sheet music has a quartet section to be sung if required!
