This tune is one Ive decided to learn because they play it in a Wichita KS session where I go sometimes for music… and it comes from- Gary Haggerty(he wrote it) —- The Portland Collection
And the ABC’s I got from JC’s tune finder.

I know very little about the Northwest music scene, Gary Haggerty and the Portland Collection.

I have a half uncle in the Northwest and a good friend in Washington, but its one of the areas of the US I haven’t visited…. That will have to change. There is/was a band there in Washington who recorded one of my tunes… so Ill have to post that one.

Nice. There are plenty of tunes about tea (The Cup of Tea, When Sick is it Tea You Want?, Tay in the Bog, My Darjeeling Asleep…) but not many about coffee.
