This is derived from the tune set with which we opened most of our 1998-99 live shows. Helene and Amy put together most of our tune sets, including this one, back in the proverbial smoke-filled room.

Langstrom's Pony is a traditional Irish tune Amy learned at a seisun; the variation is Joe's. Donald MacLean of Lewis is a Scottish tune (credited to PM Donald MacLeod, QOH) that Helene learned from a Brenda Stubbert album.

Amy and Helene found Eel in the Sink and Walter Sammon's Grandmother in Henrik Norbeck's tune collection on the web. Both are traditional. Sheehan's Reel is a well-known Irish and contra dance tune, but Helene learned it from a Natalie MacMaster recording.
