This duo of tunes was one of our favourites when we took it on tour last year, and is always guaranteed to get both the musicians and audiences tapping their toes. Rather than just share a recording though, we want YOU to get involved. Watch these tutorials from Georgina and Tom, and see how you can join in!

Arrangement: Douwe Nauta
Audio: Duncan Sutherland
Video: Mauro Silva

Fiddle tunes

Georgina, one of our violinists has made a tutorial video on how you can join with both the March and Jig tunes, and has created parts for beginner, intermediate and advanced players with some tips on fiddle playing. So get out your instruments and join in. Whilst this is most suitable for string players, those on other instruments can of course join in too.

Parts – March

Parts – Jig

Improvisation

Nevis saxophonist Tom is here to help you join in with the improvisation section close to the end of piece. Normally at this point one of the Nevis players will step forward and fill in the gaps with some improvisation. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t – that’s part of the fun! We’d love it if you joined in with this at home, and do feel free to send us in your own versions!
