Irish American Reel

fiddlehedz & friendz got to play at the William S Cohen Center today as part of the Senior Spectrum lunch program. The music program was Irish, in celebration of tomorrow being St Patrick's Day. Jigs, reels, waltzes & a couple of Irish polkas rounded out the presentation... it was great fun to look around and see folks tapping their feet and moving in time with the music. It was a new experience to organize music sets into a set amount of time, mixing types of music, tempos, and arrangements, I learned a lot. The audience was quite appreciative, and that makes it even more fun for us as musicians.
Irish American Reel comes from the New England Fiddler's Repertoire.
