This website hosts a collection of tunes played by the Hubbard Hall Tune Jam Band, an informal group of musicians from the Cambridge NY area. We meet every Tuesday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm in the Beacon Feed (aka Studio) building behind Hubbard Hall to play traditional and modern Irish, Scottish, Shetland, Quebecois, New England, and locally written music by ear. The sessions are open to all levels of skill and all instruments, and are followed by a pot luck dinner.
The focus of the site is to facilitate learning tunes by ear, and playing them together at contra dances and other events. For each tune, we have collected a short recording, a chord chart, and a written melody reminder containing the first few measures of each part.
There are currently a total of 187 tunes on the site.
