June Class

We learned two new tunes this month.  The first is from Eugene resident, Stan Gonshorowski: My Dad’s Polish Wedding Waltz.  We also have a Scandinavian tune,  Schottisch fran Havero , to learn.

Hope you have fun with the new tunes,  Joe


May Class

We had a good class Saturday.  Ila Mae couldn’t be there to teach, but Amy volunteered and did a great job leading us.  We learned a new tune—Cat Out of the Bag.

While we were jamming after the teaching, three new tunes came up.  Two of them were from the basic fiddle class and one I had missed.  The tunes were:

Loggieville Two-Step

Marching Through Georgia
