    Default A Trip To Paris/Portsmouth (English country dances)

    A Trip To Paris (Walsh, 1711) - 0:00
    Portsmouth (Playford, 1701) - 1:30

    This is a set of two early 18th century English country dances, "A Trip To Paris" published by John Walsh in 1711, and "Portsmouth", from the 11th Edition of Playford's Dancing Master (1701). I am using harmony parts by Michel van der Meiren -- see attached PDFs from:

    Played on a vintage Italian bowlback mandolin, with accompaniment on second mandolin, mandocello and tenor guitar.

    1898 Giuseppe Vinaccia mandolin (x2)
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar

    We are playing these two settings regularly at our weekly practice group meetings -- they're great fun, and I've tried to convey that in my home recording.
