I also came prepared with details of the excellent session and Cornish music website kesson.com (check out the Kyt's Tunery section) so that musicians wanting to know more about the tunes and their exact notation were able to track down the details they needed.
So Turkey Rhubarb, Estren (see link above), Fer Lyskerys, Quay Fair, Cock in Britches and Zeak Waltz were all given a good airing from time to time over the week and, I think that the lovely lady to whom I asked if she knew Cock in Britches probably did believe me when I said it was a genuine question and not some strange chat up line.
Who knows? Perhaps my airing of these tunes might lead to more musicians attending the 2nd Wednesday Cornish music and dance session at the Kings Arms down in Luxulyan, Bodmin, Cornwall (see video above). I'm sure they would get a good welcome (however, always telephone ahead to make sure it is still on as schedules do change for a variety of reasons). Perhaps I'll see some of my old friends as well as my new Cornish friends there the next time I go.
