An Dro

October 18, 2010

A breton tune in E minor played on a tremolo in D. I've heard this tune played by The Chieftains and Carlos Nunez. You can play this tune on a G or a D harp because there is no C and C# in the melody so just take you favorite harp and let's go !

I've heard this jig on Jean Sabot's album "Harmonica & Fiddle". It's a four parts jig played on a Tremolo in D. the third part is in B minor and it makes a nice transition between the others in D major. Hope you enjoy !

Ballygow Reel

September 27, 2010

This reel was composed by Phil Murphy, a great harmonica player from Ireland. He played this reel with another of his composition "the trip to Cullenstown". It's in C major so it can be easily played on C Paddy harmonica. You can find more irish harmonica on the Cd "The Trip to Cullenstown" by the Murphy Family, Phil, John and Pip murphy who all play harmonica.

Le reel Joseph

September 2, 2010

This reel is played on a Tombo tremolo in D by Bruno Kowalczyk from Quebec. Here is a little word from him about this tune :

"C'est un reel du bas du fleuve (c'est à dire en allant vers l'embouchure ; pour les français...on parle du Saint Laurent). Il a été composé par le grand joueur de "p'tit accordéon, Marcel Messervier (de Montmagny). Ce reel est une dédicace à son père. Ca s'appelle "Le reel Joseph".

Morning Star

August 26, 2010

Here is a reel played by Brendan Power. The Morning Star is in G major and Brendan plays it fast then slower. Brendan is a very good harmonica player and plays irish music with very nice ornamentation. I would recommend you to buy his album "New Irish Harmonica". You can find more information about him on his website.
