We love opening a dance with these high-energy march-like tunes.
You can't go wrong with these feisty traditional tunes.
Kristen learned this Georgia Sea Islands song in the course of her music teacher training.
Cirque du Soleil uses many hauntingly beautiful tunes in their work; this is one of them!
We heard the Mean Lids play a variation on this tune and knew we had to get our hands on it.
Matt brought us Tom Turino's lovely minor tune, which fits perfectly with one of our favorite tunes to sing.
This West African folk song was another find from Kristen's music teaching experiences.
The first tune, taken from an 1870 songbook, was originally performed (on a gourd banjo) by the Carolina Chocolate Drops. We picked up Irish fiddler Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh's tune from a recording of the New England Dancing Masters.
This beautiful, sad song depicts the aftermath of mills closing down in the mill towns of the South.
A Scottish and Irish traditional song, often sung at the end of a gathering of friends. The earliest written mention of it dates to 1605, and it is probably much older. Our version is inspired by the Wailin' Jennys, and we've made some changes in the spirit of the folk process.
