Would you like to swing like a star,
Carry music home in a jar,
For a great time come as you are,
Or would you rather be a tern?
A tern is a dancer with smiles on his face,
His feet always keep up the pace,
He has Brooklyn Swing to give him hot tunes,
With Alex calling contras for many moons,
If it’s contras and good times for which you yearn,
You'll find you'd rather be a tern!
Melanie Axel-Lute Jigaplex: Matthew Christian – fiddle, mandolin, guitar, whistle, & small pipes; Colin Forhan – DADGAD guitar; Amy Beshara – fiddle
As they orchestrate our dance, Axel-Lute harps on clarion calling while Jigaplex works their fingers to the trombone. Don’t find yourself in a piccolo by zithering around, call your partner on the xylophone and say cello for a harmonium evening; you’ll avoid sax and violins along with a psaltery and battery. Accordion to tradition, at the end of her performance, Melanie will balalaika diva.
