A Footlight Favourite


Emile  Grimshaw had a flair for inventing catchy titles to go with attractive tunes, and this is a good example of both.  The piece begins in the key of G major with a rousing Introduction and first movement.  The second section, written in the melody-note-and-chord style, is also in G and has some fingering which a beginner may find quite tricky if played at the suggested tempo.  The third section is in C major and uses one of Grimshaw’s favourite tricks with the melody first played in the lower register, and then repeated an octave higher.   A sixteen bar Interlude in A minor follows, and the piece is completed by a repeat of the third section.  This is the kind of solo which should be in the repertoire of all banjoists.
