about

Apart from the sheer joy of sharing music with an audience from the stage is the camaraderie and craic of the informal backstage session …where tunes and stories are passed around from various traditions. Folk festivals always prove a great reminder that these traditions are more similar than not and that they are all tied together.

Much of Old-time American music stems from the English and Scots-Irish springing roots of American folk music. Many old-timey tunes can be traced back to an old Irish or Scottish traditional melody. There have been many sessions where an Irish tune was played and an old-time musician would think of a comparable tune from their tradition.

Here are two tunes with similar melodic structure. The first is the traditional Irish hornpipe, “Kitty’s Wedding”, followed by the old-timey tune, “Smith’s Delight”.
