Hi guys n gals

If anybody dances Bledington Trunkles as one of their dances for the public, ie have a solidly rehearsed version, I would value an indication of the source of the tune they play, and in particular the slows.

Alternatively phaps they could posting the actual tune ... under these circumstances ABC format might be convenient, as detailed in http://www.lesession.co.uk/abc/abc_notation.htm

Well thanks Snuffy

I must say, my tatty ragged version of Mr Bacon's amazing book makes a right dog's dinner of it, so have you cleaned it up?

By the way, what dy use to edit/play your ABC files? Have you tried http:\\ABCNavigator.free.fr

Anyway fellow folkies ... are there any more ideas out there, or must I labour on under the impression that Snuffy and Morris On are the only sources of how to do it ...

Morris On is where I got it! And most of the other tunes we use.

But there are other old recordings available - like Greeny Up from Veteran tapes for example. That one doesn't have Trunkles but there are probably others that do. Try C# House.

The morris ring do a series of tapes, most have been transferred to CD now, too, of all the tunes from a given tradition. If I recall, the Bledington tape was Geoff Jerram, who is a fine concertina player and an authority on Bledders, so his version will be spot on.

I'm sure I saw a Shirley Collins LP yesterday, that mentions Bledington dancing during the recording... it's the LP with the brown tiles on the cover if that's any use?
