The Kesh Jig 2012.
This is a snapshot of comments for the Kesh jig. It’s fascinating because it records the screen names & profiles of former members. It’s from the wayback archive of previous internet activity which has all but disappeared yet traces remain. Like uneaten bread crumbs on an abandoned trail.

From the first post on the site. "I wonder if there’s anybody who remembers The Session’s humble beginnings? The site started as a small collection of tunes on a free host. Later, the site moved to my own web space. I also started added things like the searchable tune archive, the mailing list and the ability to post comments on the tunes."

Hello, my middle name is Ben, hence my screen handle ~ AB. I live in Chico, California.
We play most Thursday nights at one of our friend’s homes. My main instrument is a keyless Forbes flute.
Also play whistles & fifes in various keys.


On the whole the mustard has always been an interesting social experiment.
The early discussions are probably as informative as anything since. Occasionally more recent discussions,
especially w/newer members, continue to keep what remains of the old guard interested.

But the prime directive has always been outside of what’s posted in the main forum. The blood, sweat & tears inevitably is in the tunes sections. The mustard is, and always has been, a library for cataloging tunes.

Good to be here!
