Lady Pentweazle’s maggot
This CD is collection of tunes from the repertoire of The Rude Mechanicals - a multi-intrumental trio based in Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex. Some of the tunes are well known among local session players and have been picked up over several decades of immersion in the folk scene, a couple found in relatively obscure collections and dragged blinking into the light - e.g., the title track - while some are recent acquisitions from pieces circulated among the community of UK nyckelharpa players. More about the Mechanicals, and a big collection of dots for tunes they have amassed (many with their own 2- or 3-part arrangements) at www.rudemex.co.uk. The CD is on sale at their gigs or via their website.
(Note: This trio is not connected with any theatre company using the same name: it’s just coincidence).
