Top Of The Pops

Home Playing Group Events Diary Gallery Tune List

 

 
Dave Cook, our secretary has been keeping a record of tunes chosen at all the branch meetings since February 2000. At our meetings, everyone is given the opportunity to choose in turn, two tunes to be played by the whole group. This is the 50 most popular tunes, extracted from Dave's records, that have been chosen to date. 'Old Drove Road' still tops the charts and is way out in front, having been played 123 times over the years.
 
 
 
New tunes heard since the last update:
 
April Waltz
Clarinet break from 'High Society'  (Anthony Robb solo)
Jock Wilson of Fenton
The Drunken Duck
Ranting Shieldsman
Michael Turner's Waltz
Lemonville Jig
