  • 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)
