“Toi et Moi” is #24 in the Bal Folk Tune Book. Played on the Lilly, it has that quality inherent to many scottishes of being delightful. This is the third of Trevor Upham’s tunes that I’ve recorded for the Bal Folk Tune Book Project.
These are played simply and straightforwardly, bourrées in three. All of them are sans nom in the Bal Folk Tune Book and, as is my custom I give sans nom tunes nicknames. If you know the actual name of any of these, please let me know. The tunes are #79 (“Eevee”) #74 (“Ursula”) #83 (“Dola”). All three are named for cats in my life. Other tunes nicknamed for my cats are “Frida” and “Quinta.” Yes, I’ve had a lot of cats in my life.
Here’s a tune from the Bal Folk Tune Book (#197), a five time waltz by Trevor Upham. I’m recovering from a sprained wrist, but wanted to try playing since Brigid was here. It hurt like a MFer, but was entirely worth it!
An interesting mazurka because a few of the bars are in 2/4. It must have a particular dance associated with it, which I would love to see.
