Sweet Marie

Recommended Posts



Sweet Marie is featured as the latest tune from Parallel Play, my ongoing duet project with autoharpist Cindy Harris. Even though we live 380 miles away from each other, we have been playing nightly using the miraculous JamKazam platform.


JamKazam makes it possible for us to play live and also record high quality audio of our performance. We then mix those files the same way we would normally do, after a face to face studio recording session.


I think that this delightfully crooked tune got its start as a popular song from 1893. Old-time fiddlers (as they do) adopted it as their own and there are several variations going around. Here is the sheet music transcribed from a session at Mt. Airy in 2012 played by Bruce Green and friends: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpsNW2OjFHU
