the guns

Re: Your favourite Quirky (Evil) Trad Tune

I love how the missing beat in the third part confuses the crowd’s clapping

Re: Your favourite Quirky (Evil) Trad Tune

Loving both of these, keep them coming people.!!!

Ah yus popcorn behaviour! We already play that one and love it, especially the james bond B part!!

Re: Your favourite Quirky (Evil) Trad Tune

The Tolka Polka is pretty evil… not so hard to learn the main tune, but the variations towards the end are not easy (second tune here).

I’ve learned "Guns" recently a.k.a. Fintan McManus’, listed here: https://thesession.org/tunes/40 and it’s it’s not that hard. Just takes a bit of practice. What else… well, tunes like Knocknagow are guaranteed to confuse backers with the tonal shifts.

Wonderful topic. Keep those Quirky tunes, (and their origins), coming!!!

Oh, but please be aware that the name of O’Quirk of Co. Munster, Ireland does not represent evil at all!

Here in the USA, I have had Quirk neighbors for many years and they are most upstanding citizens.

Re: Your favourite Quirky (Evil) Trad Tune

Correction: Not County Munster but the Province of Munster.

Yusssss spaghetti panic, love it!
Almost worth squeezing together an ‘evil quirky food themed set’ with Popcorn Behaviour!

The Pumpherston Hornpipe

The Pumpherston Hornpipe - Wow, part Adams Family, part Knights of the round table, part weird. Keep them coming.

PS - i’ve learnt guns of the magnificant seven, thanks for the suggestion!!!

Pipes tunes often seem especially sinister/minor/evil - any favourites?
