Concertina Music

La Gavre

Colonne from the manuscript of Trappeniers, Brussels (1750).

Again a Flemish contradanse.

A colonne is danced in two rows, men and women facing each-other. The original tune was written for violin and cello. I've added a little harmony in the piano. I left the double notes in for the Concertina part, but you can leave them out at will. This tune was once very popular amongst Flemish fiddle players.
