Suffolk traditional tunes
This set list of instrumental medleys was produced for use as a community music resource on St Edmund’s Day (23rd November) 2009. Together they make a good representation of traditional music from Suffolk, usually played on melodeon and dulcimer, with maybe a concertina or fiddle.
Each link below takes you to a page with the score written out and further information about the tune.
All these tunes would normally be played in C.
Oh Joe the Boat is Going Over
Heel and Toe Polka
Jump on the Wagon
Owl’s Green Hornpipe
Cecil Pearl’s Hornpipe
Further information about these tunes and the style of music, plus the history behind them, is to be found in our book Before the Night Was Out, available from our online shop.
