On Friday, July 18, the Plough got together for a potluck lunch and a rehearsal in anticipation of our upcoming gig in Newburyport on the 27th. Plenty of originals were on hand, ranging from Tom’s couscous and Patrick’s hummus, to original fiddle tunes by Patrick and Dave and a new song from Tom. The Curvy Road to Canterbury is a nice tune in 6/8 written by Patrick inspired by his drive home. Mel’s Fancy is another 6/8 penned by Dave and named for fellow fiddler, Melinda Kerwin. Creation Stories is a song Tom wrote in observance of the seasons, and all these new tunes are on the set list as well as available on our CD.
