HCD Contra Jam Tune List

Here's a list of the tunes we've played most frequently, plus the ones (asterisked) we'll play at the HCD New Year's Eve contra dance. For each tune, I've indicated the key; the page number from the "Portland Collection" (pc), "Waltz Book" (w1), "Waltz Book II" (w2), "New England Fiddler's Repertoire" (ne), or "Fiddler's Fakebook" (ff); and the number of times we've played it.
