Our Tunes

The following tunes are ones that I have heard and recognized at the Dick O’Dow’s Session. There are, without doubt, others that I have heard but not recognized. Still more that I have heard, but not often enough to place on the list.

For those who want to join in and play, this list can serve as a guide of the basic tunes to learn.

If there are tunes you believe ought to be added or removed, please email Gary (tunes@sessionite.com) with your suggestions.
