Information about Gannin' To Blaydon Races (Recorder Trio)
The Blaydon Races Song of 1862 is regarded as the unofficial anthem of Tyneside and is sung at the start of an annual 5.9 mile athletics race which takes place every 9th June (since 1981). The words of the song are used as the basis for the whole race beginning in Collingwood Street in Newcastle, heading west along Scotswood Road and finishing in Blaydon in Gatehead.
This arrangement for Descant, Treble and Tenor recorders allows all 3 instruments to enjoy the melody. A jazzy middle section with a walking tenor part is followed by a return to the six-eight jog of the original tune.
