Here's a video with music that I will be playing at our country dance on June 4th. I think you'll enjoy it.


dance

When I first saw the music, I thought, "What is this mess?" Then, as usual, I found it on the Internet, heard it being played by good musicians, and decided it makes sense after all.

Have a listen. It's a good tune, and I love watching the accordionist. How I wish I could play like that! And she's so beautiful, too.

Mudcat's own Will Fly also does a fine version:

And here's the Master, playing his own composition at the Royal Oak in Lewes - I was there that night. Great evening!

Out of curiousity, is there any history or back story to the tune title?

Cheers,

Andrez

Not that I've heard. A lot of contemporary dance tunes have precious titles. It gets tiresome after a while.

John K told me that, when he wrote it, he wanted to compose something off-beat in the spirit of the long-lost novelty tunes of the 1920s and 1930s. It's not a dance tune as such - i.e. not written for dancing - just a little but of catchy fun.
