Temptation Rag " Henry Lodge" (1909)

"Great performance - it takes a lot of perseverance to learn a complicated piece like that.  It would take me at least a month! The band Rattletrap Ruckus do a nice recording of this featuring accordion and tenor banjo"

The Bell Chimes

A pretty little tune - this is the Herbert J Ellis version (but with the Dobson intro).  Hope you like this one, Ian (our resident Bell Ringer)

Edit by Ian:

I have added a Music player for Carrie's recording.

Very nice indeed Carrie, and a nice sounding banjo too. You sound better than my Handbell Ringing Team…
