This is a tune I learned years ago in sessions in Manchester, UK. I seem to remember it possibly being of Eastern European origin. Can anyone tell me the title? Thanks in advance.

Hi Stanron,

I don't recognise it but I like it.

I'm sure someone here will know it.

Helen

I made a file from the ABC

Thanks for that, FreddyHeadey. I went to the Mandolin Tab ABC converter but then I didn't know how to add the midi file here.

I just listened to it again. It sounds sort of French to me or maybe Canadian or something, so given my past attempts at guessing tune origins, it's probably from somewhere totally unrelated. LOL

I just had a thought pop into my head. The tune reminds me of some of the tunes used with limberjack dolls, which I checked out on YouTube a while back.

Example: Limberjack dancing doll - tune - Do Mr. Boker Do

Limberjack dancing doll - tune played by fiddler Eric Marten

Some parts sound like Ma Tonkinoise (It's Delightful To Be Married).

Thanks Monique. Both those examples fit the third part of the tune really well, and Helen, I love the dancing dolls. Come day go day, whiskey on a Sunday.

Well, Monique, I wasn't thinking in that genre at all, i.e. the genre of the beautiful Josephine Baker shaking her tailfeathers. :-)

I assumed it would be a folk tune.

Scholars of worldwide folk are the US folk duo/trio/band band, Simple Gifts. All tunes strung.

Suggest trying to find them via Google to ask them to listen.... tho this is their annual Folk College season so you might get lost in their email till summer. They're also on FB.

Thanks for all the contributions so far. If my memory serves me right the tune comes from an album of immigrant Ukrainian folk musicians recorded in the USA in the first quarter of the 20th Century. They were possibly Library of Congress recordings. I remember exuberance, fun and quirky timing. Does this help?

Simple Gifts has researched that era/region.
