“The Blueberry Ball” ~ moved from 3/4 to 6/8 by Kevin Bennett

S: Kevin Bennett from St. Paul’s, Newfoundland - played on a Hohner G/C Erica

Quotes from the sleeve notes for the recording “The Four Stops: Traditional Accordion Music from the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland and the Labrador Straits”:
Track 10, 2nd tune of two, the first being the 3/4 waltz/song

The Blueberry Ball - Song and Jig - “I think that was Sam House from Daniel’s Harbour wrote that. That was a pretty popular song one time. I was sitting down one night and I thought I would put a square dance tune to it, make a tune out of it.” ~ Kevin Bennett

“Well, I started playing when I was seven, elight years old. I remember that old tin violin Santa Claus brought me, my grandfather he used to tune it for me. I started with the violin, and then when I was the age of eight and nine, ten years old I started at the cordeen and when I was twelve I played for square dances. My dad, he was a fairly good accordion player. He taught me most of the accordion jigs. I only ever got paid for one square dance and that as a five dollar bill. I played the whole night. I never stopped, old man, till daylight.” ~ Kevin Bennett
