Dusty Strings Jam, 2013/06/09

It was a lovely sunny day, and a smaller than usual group of us spent a few hours of it in the basement, playing these tunes:

  • Soldier’s Joy
  • Chinky-Pin (Too Young To Marry)
  • Fisher’s Hornpipe
  • Tennessee Waltz
  • The Fiddler’s Drunk And The Fun’s All Over
  • Red-Haired Boy
  • Sandy Boys
  • Carnival Polka
  • Pig Ankle Rag
  • Old Aunt Sally Put A Bug On Me
  • Wind That Shakes The Barley
  • Cider Mill
  • Soldier’s Joy in waltz time
  • Liberty
  • That Mysterious Reel
  • Whiskey Before Breakfast
  • Shove That Pig’s Foot A Little Further In The Fire
  • The Blackest Crow
  • Boatman
  • Dirty Sheets
  • Slumber, My Darling
  • The Canal in October
  • Home With The Girls In The Morning
  • Old John Tate (Land of Lincoln)
  • Old Joe Clark

Sarah floated the idea of posting a new tune to learn for the jam in advance, so people could try learning it at home and then bringing it to the jam the next month. Follow her on FB for updates!

As a special bonus, here’s Sarah playing her 3/4 arrangement of Soldier’s Joy at Folklife:
