"Infinite Winter Squash" jig, composition copyright Hope Hoffman 2005

An antidote for the masses of snow and cold weather is a nice abundant stock of winter squash.

The "Infinite Winter Squash" jig was written as therapy after running out of squash recipes.

"Infinite Winter Squash" is recorded live on Hope's CD, available online as single-track downloads & mail-order, & at Maine retailers.

These newly composed Maine dance tunes are of course flexible as to the choices of chords and variations, but the audio samples along with notation can give you a starting point for making each tune your own.
