I can’t quite believe that it’s week 25 of my #tuneoftheweek project already. I’m still having lots of fun with the project so I think I’ll keep it going for a while longer anyway. I have plans to create a tune book in the not so distant future so watch this space.
I’ve written one 6/4 reel before which I recorded on the G&T EP with Gráinne Brady. You can listen to it by clicking here. So for this week’s tune I thought I’d try to write another 6/4 reel. This time it’s in B minor and E minor.
Last week I was up in Aviemore for the week teaching piano at Fèis Spè. Myself and two other girl tutors who needed accommodation for the week were staying in a B&B and the five lad tutors were staying in a self-catering house. Us girls went round to the house each evening to use the kitchen to cook our tea. One evening we were there and we couldn’t find the washing up liquid anywhere. “Maybe it’s in the shower” was one suggestion. “Surely not!”. But, sure enough, we found it in the shower. So the next night we presented the boys with soap and shampoo! It was a good laugh. So I thought I’d call this tune ‘The Fairy in the Shower’.
