Newport Bush Orchestra Term 2 May 30th and June 6 2011

Present 6 June: Alasdair, Annette, Brian, Bruce S, Bruce W, Chris K, Christine H, Greg O, Helen C, Kathryn, Llyn S, Michael DV, Simon D, Simon L, Wendy.

Tonight we reviewed the tune that Helen taught us last week 'Gordon Lyle's Mazurka' and then Greg taught us a couple of new tunes - 'Bob in the Wash House' and 'Ten Pretty Girls'.

We then ran through about eight Tom Walsh tunes in preparation for the upcoming Newport Folk Festival.

Michael de Valle also reminded us about the upcoming Bush Dance for the Menzies Creek Primary School on Saturday 25 June at 6pm. We need all the players we can get and it should be a great night. I'll be emailing the orchestra with more information about the gig in the next day or so.

Present 30 May: Alasdair, Bruce S, Bruce W, Chris K, Christine H, Fiona C, Helen C, Kathryn, Kerry, Leonie, Llyn S, Michael DV, Rhonwyn, Rob R, Simon D, Simon L, Trevor, Wendy.

Greg was a bit crook tonight, so Helen Cahun ably stepped in and taught us all the lovely tune 'Gordon Lyle's Mazurka'. Thanks
Helen for doing such a great job at short notice.

As always, here's the link to the tunes and sheet music: click here
