  • 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
    1 4 Reel Brenda Stubberts, Old Grey Cat
    1 5 Jig, Reel The Wild One, Julia Delaney
    1 6 Reel Lady Anne Montgomery, Tamlin
    1 7 Waltz Ashoken Farewell
    2 1 Reel Staten Island, Arkansas Traveler
