  • 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.

    Songs about terrible relationships
