Wednesday 5.10.17

Wednesday Waltz, not a waltz. Today I should be somewhere in England… actually, in or around the Cardiff area experiencing a bit of The Doctor Who. What a nerd. Then to Cornwall then towards Oxford… then London and up to Scotland. This is a tune by Willie Hunter: The Love O’ Da Isles. (Set to post from March 24th… I was planning ahead.)


Wednesday 5.3.17

Wednesday Waltz, not a waltz. I’m posting this into the future from March 12 to show up on May 5. At this time I should be somewhere in Ireland. I think Dublin for a couple of days and then heading to Cork. This tune was composed by the Rev. William McLeod in the late 1700s when he was assigned to a parish in Argyll and had to leave his native Bracadale on the Isle of Skye.

The Cliffs of Moher… an actual place where I will actually be in about 2 weeks… actually.

Wednesday Waltz, this time not a waltz. Da Slockit Light by Tom Anderson.


Wednesday 4.12.17

Wednesday Waltz… get this, an actual waltz this time. Country Waltz.


Wednesday 4.5.17

Wednesday waltz… Sort of a waltz because it is 3/4… but more of a slow air as parts of this are 6/4 and 5/4. Another one of those tunes with a bunch of history.
