  • MIT Contra 2010-02-23

    February 24th, 2010
    contra, music  [html]
    I played the mit dance last night. Chris lahey called and the band was:
    Jeff Kaufman Mandolin (also bass, piano)
    Audrey Knuth Fiddle
    Peter Buchak Accordion (also concertina)
    Drew Stephens Guitar
    Rick Kaufman Double bass (also mandolin)
    It went pretty well. I was frustrated somewhat by not really being sure how we sounded, but I got good feedback. The sets we did were:
    Far From Home (G reel) Over the Waterfall (D reel)
    Indian Point (Em jig) Road to Lisdoonvarna (Em jig)
    Coleman's March (D reel) Baghad Gus (Em reel)
    Fair Jenny's (D/G jig) Hundred Piper's (A jig)
    Marie's Wedding (G reel) Road to Boston (D reel)
    Calliope House (E jig) All the Rage (E jig)
    Brenda Stubberts (Am reel) Kitchen Girl (Amix/Am reel)
    Sheebeg Sheemore (D waltz)
    Break
    Reel St Joseph (D reel) Dedicado a Jos (Bm/D reel)
    Maison de Glass (D jig) Star Above the Garter (G jig)
    Angeline the Baker (D reel) Arkansas Traveller (D reel)
    MacArthur Road (E reel) Frank's (A reel)
    Haapavesi (D waltz)
    Lots of fun.
