Sorry to hear that Frank. Maybe by the Dec. 8th jam? That's also Julia's birthday. Hope you feel better soon.
You will be missed! Get better and see you soon.

Finally, we have two others we'll do for the Irish songs. We'll also do the standard bluegrass tunes too. One of the others is an original Jig (6/8) called Tombstone Without a Name and the other one is All For Me Grog.
