This tune is written by young Melbourne fiddler Catherine Moser, in honour of her apiarist father, who lives in the bush. The tune has been recorded by Catherine’s group The Beenies, and maybe elsewhere too.
It’s best played at a slowish stately pace. I think it’s one of the most elegant reels I know, and one of the loveliest tunes to come out of Oz
Re: The Beekeeper
I still play this lovely tune of Catherine’s. Though is in G, I’m wondering if it’s actually major ? It doesn’t quite seem to gel. If any one can assist. Perhaps a modal ?
