Maries Wedding (polka)

Very similar to "Mairies Wedding", also on this site as https://thesession.org/tunes/706.

I suggest that in the "B" part, dcB2 should read d=cB2, if the key is D major, otherwise the key of G (1#) is more suitable.

Maries wedding

I agree with above - wrong key - should be G, one flat.

Again

soeey - one sharp, i.e. F#

It’s a March

Not a polka…

Rhythm isn’t right

Someone should repost this tune with correct notes and rhythm

Blackbear March/Polka ?

I have a recording from the Suffolk UK Band " Orwell String Band " from the 1970s. One set they play is
Lucy Campbell/Marie’s Wedding/Blackbear in that order. I would like the sheet music and midi to "Blackbear"
but cannot find it on search. Can anyone put light on this tune ?

Thanks John T.

Blackbear March/Polka ?

Thank you Nigel for your reply. That’s not the one I play. I reckon I’ve got the name wrong, although another musician I mentioned named it Blackbear also. I’ll keep searching.
Thanks again, John T.

Re: Marie’s Wedding

Would love to have the sheet music for van Morrision’s version introduction.
