Twenty-one comments

This is on one of Blowzabella’s older CDs. Not sure who wrote it.

ABC notation

I think the version I learned was closer to:

ABA GAF|GEF DEC|A,2A, DEF|E2E CDE|
F3 FGF|E2E CDE|F2E2C2|A,=B,^C D3:|
B,2B, DEF|B,2B, DEF|A,2A, DEF|A,2A, DEF|
B,2B, DEF|B,2B, DEF|ABA GAF|GEF DEC|

for the first few bars

Martin, hope you don’t mind me posting the version that I got from Blowzabella:

Composer

I think the composer was Paul James, bagpiper with Blowzabella.

Horizonto

Great tune.
Angels of the North use this for the Willowtree.
Great dance.
Thanks to John James.

Noel

Composer

Paul James composed this tune. It’s from the album "Vanilla"
Does anyone have any interesting ideas for a bass rhythm?

Damn…I was to quick with the ‘post’ button…

Anyway, I believe that the version I just posted is the ‘real thing’, which is to say, as played by Blowzabella on the Vanilla album.

Posted by .

The copy in "New Tunes for Dancing" is slightly different again! I might ABC it one day…

Martin Clarke ~ ??? ~ any comment???

& whatever happened to the original submitter? Have they nothing to say for the tune? ~ just another ‘dump and run’? It would be nice Martin if you would at least confess the origins. Where did you pick it up? Is it a favourite of yours, or do you actually hate the thing but thought you’d subject others to it? ‘Comment’ is welcome and appreciated!!!

Sorry Ceolachan- I got lost a bit there. Yes it is a favourite of mine, though loads of people play it in Em and this irritates me because it’s much harder on the fiddle than in Dm :). I particularly like the chord sequences here, and I agree that it goes really well with the Willow Tree dance. One day I shall learn to play it on the hurdy-gurdy…

Horizonto

I composed Horizonto after touring with Blowzabella in Brazil in 1988. There is a live album from that tour called Pingha Frenzy - you can find out more from the discography on www.blowzabella.com. I remember making the tune up in my head while walking down a street in London thinking about the tour and particularly a gig we did in a decaying old opera house in Bello Horizonte (hence the alternative name). It’s a catchy tune because it is something of a pastiche - or put together from bits of (half remembered) other tunes - but I am very glad people like it. As a 48 bar jig it’s a useful tune for dancing and people have sent me lots of versions of their bands playing it which I am always delighted to hear. There are lots of ways of harmonising it and I sometimes use it when I teach a Dance Orchestra/Band Workshop as there are so many ways it can be arranged. If you have recorded a version I’d love to hear it. I may put them all on a website one day. Blowzabella is still going strong and Horizonto is still in the repertoire. I’m still trying to write a tune that’s better. Haven’t managed it yet. Paul James. info@pauljames.eu
