Tune of the month for the February 2013 session
The next Walthamstow Tune Session at the Nag’s Head will be on Tuesday 12th February, and Ayla has sorted out a tune for us.
The Lemonville Jig – a very jolly session favourite (usually paired with The Quarryman). It was written by a Canadian, Jack Hayes, and popularised over here by Northumbrian fiddler Willie Taylor.
Ed Rennie plays a nice loping slightly dotted version.
As usual, the sound clips and printed music links aim to give a feeling for how the tune is currently played in sessions, but they don’t of course represent one ‘correct’ way of playing the tune.
