Pull Down The Blind

This is a jaunty little waltz that often gets played at dances here in Rochester NY. This particular arrangement is taken from James Morrison’s 1931 book "How to Play the Globe Accordeon Irish Style", available for viewing online at http://www.itma.ie/digitallibrary/score/Morrison_accordion-tutor, and is close to the local version. A more intricate setting of the tune also appears in the Roche Collection of Traditional Irish Music, vol. 3, No. 153 (1927).
