The Marc and Caitlin Wedding Set

November 19, 2017 7:05 PM

Another rough mix from a recent bout of recording. These are two tunes I played during the summertime wedding of two good friends.

The first is an Irish slipjig called "Another Jig Will Do"; the second is an example of an Irish tune that also became popular in the American old time tradition, called "Durang's Hornpipe." I play banjo, guitar and octave mandolin on this bunch. And Ian, my friend who did the recording, has a guest vocal at the very end, if you stick around long enough :)

Nice! Durang's has been on my list of tunes to try for a while now; yours sounds great, and makes me want to give a try sooner rather than later. And I always forget about slip jigs, but I always like them when I hear them. Well done!

thanks hades! This version of Durang's is pretty simple - I recently heard Adam Hurt's amazing banjo version and could barely tell it was the same tune, as his version was wayyyy fancier... but I think this one works too :)
