Before the Night Was Out

Before the Night Was Out


Price: 14.95

Quantity:

Through the twentieth century, music has been recorded from traditional musicians in Suffolk and Norfolk, and now many of the most important and unusual of these lively dance tunes are available in a printed collection.

Tune books from various regions in England have been published in recent years. To present something from East Anglia, a region renowned for its traditional music throughout the twentieth century, has proved something of a conundrum: how to portray in written form what is essentially an oral tradition? Before the Night Was Out aims to shed light on the way in which traditional music in Suffolk and Norfolk has thrived and mutated during the twentieth century, as well as providing a resource for practising musicians.

It is therefore a rather different kind of tune book…

Caedmon Capers-A collection of Country Dances.

This book contains a selection of original dances and tunes, which I hope will appeal to dancers, callers and musicians alike. I claim a hand in all of the dances. Most of them are the result of my own imagination. The rest were devised during workshops I have run at various festivals and events over the last few years, and are the result of the collective imagination of all attending those workshops. Many of the dances were created between 1987 and 1990, when I was employed as Folk Artist in Residence in Gateshead, a post funded jointly by Gateshead Libraries and Arts and by Northern Arts. As far as I am aware, this was the first such post in the country. Several of the dances bear names related to Gateshead, and The Caedmon Capers was devised especially for the monthly ceilidhs which are held on the first Tuesday of every month in The Caedmon Hall, in the towns Central Library. I am very grateful to my friend Robin Dunn for his efforts with the music in this book. Many of the tunes are of his own composition. Each dance has been given a tune, though, as with most country dances, musicians should feel free to play whatever tune fits the dance. I have been meaning to publish this book for years, and am indebted to Portcullis Press and Gateshead Libraries and Arts for making it possible. My thanks also to all those who contributed to the book by attending workshops and to all the musicians who played for them. My special thanks to my friend Christine Bissell for drawing the music so beautifully, and for a lot more besides. I apologise for any unintentional plagiarism that may occur in any of the dances or tunes. I trust that the instructions make sense, and hope that both dances and music will bring a great deal of pleasure.

Price: 2.95

Peeping Tom combine the essential melodic qualities of traditional folk dance music with a modern rhythmic approach to produce their own unique style. With many years' combined dance band experience behind them they pride themselves on being able to produce the right tune for the right dance at the right time. For some years now, the band have performed at many of the country's major folk festivals and ceilidh clubs, working with all of the U.K.'s top callers.
Many of the tunes they play are written by Ben Woodward (melodeon) and Ian Wilson (keyboards) and this book contains 63 of them. Some of the tunes are working their way into sessions and no wonder. These lads can write solid 'traditional' dance music. Most of the tunes have appeared on one or another of the band's recordings.
Foreword by Hugh Rippon, photographs, biographies, classified index, discography and chords; a great book for the musician seeking to play something that's not been overdone before.
