December 2019

The new tune for this month is “Stockport Polka” (which many people will recognise as being used in a seasonal song 40 years ago!) plus a new set (Set 12) combining Stockport Polka and Tip Top Polka. There are also a few Christmassy tunes that we can pick from on the night.

The playlist for December is here. It lists all the tunes in our repertoire and shows this month’s playing order for each of the two halves of the evening. We’ll play each tune 3 or 4 times and have a short break around 9 PM. After 10PM it’s a regular session, with any tune or song and at any speed.

Please remember to thank our hosts, Jason and Lisa, and to support the bar during the evening.
