This afternoon, I called Hull's Victory (for the
first time) for the
Challenging Contra Dance crowd in Montpelier VT. Crowfoot did a
fantastic job playing the tune and even came up with a fantastic
change tune (that escapes me for the moment - it was French Canadian!).
This is what Nicolas (of Crowfoot) said about the change tune:
The tune we paired with hull's victory is known as
'Set Americain', a
Québecois reel in D. It's worth noting that some finessing is
required to make the key change work.
At the time they were talking about the "finessing", they mentioned
inserting a "big, fat C-chord". ;)
