Thread Name: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Subject: RE: Sweet Afton - which tune?
Following on........ 2 years later, and just gearing up for our next folk club Burns Night, my concertina-playing friend and I (button accordion) usually get asked to do tunes as there are a good number of other singers (indeed we are both singers too, but on this occasion, it's tunes we do - hopefully not a verdict on our singing!)
So our idea is to play, as a medley, all the Sweet Afton tunes we know: That's up to 4 now, if we include "Yellow-Haired Laddie", mentioned higher up the thread, and supposedly the first tune ever used.
Btw, I believe Kenneth McKellar recorded BOTH the Hume version and the other "Paisley".
