Re: Ton Double Gavotte

Been listening to Kevin Burke & Mícheál Ó Domhnaill’s 3 x Breton Gavottes on Portland and know this is the first tune of the set. Don’t suppose anybody might know what the other two are, pls? So lovely

To @angharad_cooper
Heyo from Belgium,
The 2 other gavotennoù were also recorded by Padrig Sicard of his album A Way of Brittany I think.
Kevin Burke teaches the 3 tunes in a video cassette that I found available on the Internet also in torrent.
As far as I know they like most Breton dance tunes don’t really have a formal name.
I tried to play along with Padrig Sicard’s track but he seems to have with a special effect changed the key during the set.
