Happy Saint Patrick's Day

Posted by sawsometunes on Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Over the last few weeks, I have been dusting off my somewhat limited repoirtoire of irish tunes.  My girlfriend & I, who perform as an acoustic duet, did a couple of shows of irish & celtic music in honor of St. Patrick's Day.  It motivated me to learn some new tunes, including Morrison's Jig, Sally Garden, and Foggy Dew (on banjo).  I also worked on Irish Washerwoman and Larry O' Gaff, along with Danny Boy and Give Me Your Hand.  It was fun.

Although I play more old time fiddle tunes than irish tunes, it made me realize how many wonderful songs there are in other traditions.  I hope to keep some of these tunes in my regular practice rotation.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, y'all!!!  Guiness and irish fiddle tunes all around!!!
