March 2020 – Waltz for the Valeta

Once again the tune of the month is not the tune that was intended – this one is such a jolly little tune and was so well-received in the Wheaty session recently that its shoved it’s way into the list as ToTM for March.

Waltz for the Valeta, from the playing of East Anglian Melodeon Player Percy Brown.

Here’s Lester Bailey playing the tune on one row melodeon.

For anyone feeling particularly enthusiastic and energetic here’s a walkthrough of the dance steps, although patrons are reminded that there is limited space in the Green Man so please don’t get carried away.
