Kid's Day at the Farmer's Market in July

Farmers' Market Special Events - 2007

July 14 -- Kid's Day

We could work up a bunch of kid-friendly tunes for Kid's Day and perform a special set just for kids. Post tunes you want to play by writing comments on this blog and I'll compile a set list. Then I'll post that list here with links to tabs, etc.
