Hi Kanack Fiddle Club!
We decided (somewhat spur-of-the-moment, but I really like the idea) to pick a few tunes last Thursday, and work on them over the next few weeks. Here they are:
Bus Stop Reel by Anita Anderson
The Roaring Barmaid by Anthony “Sully” Sullivan
Crooked Stovepipe traditional
The Stool of Repentance traditional
Hanter Dro is a Breton dance, and a close relative of the An Dro (“left-right-left, right” instead of “left-right-left, right-left-right”).
I learned this tune from Rachel Bell.
A well-known Irish session tune… great fun to play!
Written by Susan Conger, a fiddler from Montague Center, Massachusetts, and learned from David Kaynor.
Written by Liz Carroll, an Irish fiddler and prolific composer from Chicago.
