We had a great time at the 2014 New Jersey Folk Festival this year. We were also joined by members of the Sugar Pie band, who were also performing at the festival.
Here are a bunch of pics
Perhaps you’ve heard, we at the Ithaca OT Jam have been working at editing down over 500 tunes from 3 person’s field recordings of the weekly jam sessions, made over the last 5 years. The objective was putting together a CD with the Best of the Ithaca Jam – Selected Field Recordings for friends and new folks to the jam. There were so many fun tunes, we decided to make it an mp3 CD so we could fit more on it… Some are new tunes, others are familiar names, but different versions!
This was conceived as a relatively low budget affair, but it’s pretty decent sound, and 111 tunes! I think you may know that we play in a 5 week cycle a different key / tuning each week. So, this is an mp3 CD with 5 folders, each for a different week. That’s more than 5 audio CDs worth of music! I’ve attached a copy of the liner notes with a list of tunes, etc. CD-Liner Notes
They are available for $6 postpaid. Let me know if you’d like a copy; I’d be pleased to send you one.

Here is a sampling of the tunes, give a listen

We will be performing again this year at the New Jersey Folk Festival. Please stop by to watch, heckle or perform with us.

I got these files from Larry Warren’s amazing Slippery Hill web site of billions of Old Time tunes
