Reel Issoudun

Tune for the week starting March 25, 2007 is Reel Issoudun. This is a crooked tune in the key of A. Because of the irregular pattern, it isn't well suited for contradancing, but it is a nice step dancing tune and also would be a nice addtion to a non-dancing music program. We first learned this tune last summer at Maine Fiddle Camp, from Guy Bouchard. This, and other crooked tunes, can be found in Air Tordus, at Thirty Below. The version posted on the site comes from The Session, which is a great resource when searching out tune information.
