  • MIT Contra Dance 5/4/2010

    May 5th, 2010
    contra, music  [html]
    I played for the mit contra dance last night with jon cannon (fiddle), rick kaufman (bass), and gary shrager (guitar, banjo). It was a lot of fun. With help from eric I made recordings of most of the tunes. Listening on my laptop, it sounds like there's not much guitar or bass in the recordings, but that might be the tinny speakers.

    1 2 Reel The Wren, Coleman's March
    1 3 Reel Over the Waterfall, Dedicado a Jos
