I got back from CT to open up an interesting evening at Godfrey’s as part of a benefit concert for MeadowWood Old Time Festival in July. They decided to rune an old time open mike, so there were dulcimer players, fiddlers, hammered dulcimer folks, etc.
I decided to do three tunes from Playground that I’ve picked up from Pete Seeger albums that have deep old time roots, and are in fact play/dance songs. I did Jimalong Joe, All Around the Kitchen and Skip to My Lou. It was nice to know that I still have some old time roots in my current set list.
