    Default Can you name this Italian tune?

    I learnt this at a folk week last year, but the tutor didn't know it's name.




    Sorry about the gurning

    Could be Tarantella Calabrese? Maybe... it is very hard to tell. I did try to slow this video down. Then again, it may not. Also I don’t know if that would be the name of only one tarantella or the name of the dance. Just a long shot guess.

    Thanks Jim, great video, I want to put my dancing shoes on. We did play it at that sort of speed in the evening session, but I had the accordion player to cover up all my fluffs.

    It seems like Italian tune naming is on a par with English, as I know a version of Tarantella Calabrese that seems quite different to the one in the video, although maybe it's just the speed they play at.
