Sunny Corner

This is a tune from Cornwall,a Celtic country.It’s from an old album of Cornish music by a band called Puca.

Bucca?

Sure that wasn’t "Bucca", jocklet. The album might have been "The Hole In The Harper’s Head", which is another good tune.

It might have been Bucca.I had the album,but it fell by the wayside.This is the only tune that i can remember from it.

That’s true; Cornwall is one of the six ‘ancient celtic kingdoms’ and the only part of mainland England, along with Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man and Brittany (part of mainland France)

Incidently, a rather magnificent crow, the ‘Chough’ has recently returned to Cornwall as well _more derserving news than anything to do with the Tower of London’s ‘Ravens’ = a victorian hoax

this polka sounds rather ‘courtly’ as in Baroque or Neo-Baroque type tunes… It reminds me a little of ‘Deck the Halls with Holly’ or ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’
Perhaps its pedigree goes back to some ancient Carols?

The overall rhythm and this run: D/E/F/G/ A remind me also of a Breton dance tune which name I forgot (if it had a name) (Sur Mon Chemin J’ai Rencontré??)
I like it but I would want to play it something more like
