Fiddlers' Tour

The Capital Region's Weekly Traditional Music Jam

Session Sets

Below is a list of sets we toss into the mix on Tuesday nights. There are many other ways to combine tunes, but these have become favorites. Sets change, often. As we get used to them, we work up new combinations, then occasionally come back to some of the original sets. New sets will be added as we discover them. Titles in (parenthesis) are alternate names for a tune.
