Tunes can take interesting journeys from one genre to another. Were all aware of tunes that have crossed boundaries over time, especially older historical melodies. Toms discovered an Irish trad reel, John Stensons #2, which was recorded by Kevin Burke for his classic 1978 album If The Cap Fits, but has recently found a new life, having been rearranged as an Old-Time tune by Rachel Eddy and then adapted as a bluegrass instrumental by mandolin/fiddler Nate Lee. Tom will teach the original Irish version and then show the tunes clever adaptation into these other styles.
