Over 30 fiddlers, pickers and fans showed up at the Leadway Bar & Gallery on North Damon on a Saturday night to hear Dan Gellert. After serenading us with a dozen wonderful old fiddle and banjo tunes, Dan and Debbie led a jam session for the next hour through a number of old chestnuts and few rare treasures.
Here’s a few of the tunes Dan played in the Leadway’s back room.
Scott No 2
A tune from Missouri fiddler, Vee Latty.
It’s a go. Fiddlers of all stripes, banjoists and all old-time music lovers should not miss this opportunity to sit up close to listen to Dan and play a few tunes. Some tunes for the jam session will be posted later this week.
