  • Songs for the Free Raisins?

    November 7th, 2012
    contra, music  [html]
    Is there anything that you've always thought would be fun to contra dance to but isn't a standard fiddle tune? The Free Raisins currently have a few sets where we play something unusual ("Summer Nights" from Grease etc.) but we're looking to add a few more. Ideas?

    Ideally it would have two 16 beat sections that each repeated once, along with a clear beat around 118, but we can do some amount of adjusting to square things up.
