The Oak Leaf

This tune by Susan Conger of New England was found by my wife as she was looking for another reel on JC’s ABC tunefinder. I was surprised to not find a version of it here, and thought it might make a nice addition.
Anyway, we both flashed on it, so I thought others here might.
Enjoy!

Really cool, I like it a lot in a set right after Maggie’s Pancakes

Composer

This tune was actually written by Susie Secco, another western Mass. musician, not Susan Conger — see Susan Conger’s tune book Along the River, p. 40.

On The Moving Violations’ album "Faster Than A Walk" this tune is coupled with Catharsis.
