  1. Being as unattentive as I am, I didn’t notice there was a music list until after my second time attending… So to make up for that, here’s a Spotify playlist with most everything from this list: http://open.spotify.com/user/cwiiis/playlist/4plULdF5dzyKXaHdug01CV

    Where there are multiple versions of a song, I lean towards bluegrass/banjo (thus Scruggs for Cripple Creek and Cumberland Gap), but otherwise I think this is a reasonable representation of how these songs get played when I’ve been present.

    • Nice work Chris! There are some common tunes that we have tended to play on the list but as you may have gathered its constantly evolving and no two weeks are ever the same! Cheers, Helen
