June 10, 2021 - Contra Dance Tunes Class Special Event: Learn Moneymusk
Let's learn Moneymusk in continuation of honoring dear friend & mentor David Allen Kaynor, who advocated playing Moneymusk every day. Let's meet at 8 pm EDT- **Note time change for this week.**
Message me or comment for the Zoom link. It's the same link as last week. If the Zoom meeting fills up I will also livestream the class on Facebook.
It's a classic chestnut tune. Never fear- we will break it down and play it reaaallly slowly and calmly for a good while. If you know it already- a chance to try out some high harmony; see below!
My thoughts here on this.
