Tune

Adrian Grant, our friend Dec 2015 in Chanter 2015 Winter

Today we still play a vast body of ‘traditional’ tunes that link us to people in the past; tunes that may have been composed by people who died hundreds of years ago, and we will never know their names. Other tunes are named after people about whom we may know little or nothing but their tunes still live on, and are cherished.

Bonny Lad if you can shew me the way to Wallington Dec 2015 in Chanter 2015 Winter

JTLO Workshop That stands for the ‘John Tose Light Orchestra’, a name Ian Clabburn came up with last year for my G and D pipes harmony workshop. I’ll be doing it again this year, but this time with something a little easier - a nice slow processional from Galicia. In addition we’ll probably have a go at something from the previous two years repertoire. The Marcha Procesional de San Benito was composed by Xose Benito Gonzalez of ‘Os Dezas de Moneixas’ fame.
