Phillipsburg Jam Tunes

Posted by bj on Saturday, June 20, 2009

Nancy, one of our jammers at the Phillipsburg NJ Oldtime Jam, recorded most of the jam on May 12th, so I took a couple of the tunes and uploaded them into my music section.

The one tune, Little Billy Wilson, is one I'm learning. Most of the fiddling you hear on that one is, if my memory is correct, by David Husic, and Greg Meyers. I can't remember if Charlie Piccione was there too, I'm thinking not, but he may have been. I think Corey, David's son, may have also been fiddling with us, though I'm not sure. Please forgive if I have the casting for that evening all wrong. I don't think I do, but anything's possible when it comes to remembering a certain jam night.

The other tune is Maggots in the Sheephide, and I'm leading on that one (which guarantees that I'm going to screw it up, since I get really self conscious.) The others are just learning this one, so I had to carry it until David started to pick up on it. Luckily he's a fast learner.

I think you can tell we have some fun . . .

Oooh. I like Maggots in the Sheephide. Less-than-pleasant title, but, nice tune! I was JUST playing Little Billy Wilson (it's on my practice list) but I like your version better. Thanks for sharing. It does sound like a fun jam.
