Post 222: 'STAMFORD STRUT'

Strut Your Stuff in Stamford

Here is Stamford Strut, the 1956 composition by Graham Beech. It is a straightforward 32-bar a - a - b - a tune, easy to work on at a medium tempo.

It took its name from the lovely old market town of Stamford in Lincolnshire, England. Stamford has many 400-year-old stone buildings and quite a few timber-framed houses that are even older.
