about

Sligo Creek Stompers Washington D.C., D.C.

Sligo Creek Stompers play a raucous but refined blend of traditional roots music: Appalachian & Midwestern old time and bluegrass, New Orleans ragtime and traditional jazz, haunted Irish fiddle tunes, Texas & gypsy swing. Inspired by scratchy 78 rpm records, contra dancing and a good bottle of whiskey the Stompers are keeping the flame of American stringband music alive in the Washington, DC area. ... more

Track Name: Ja Da
The chorus is a simple phonetic: "Ja da, ja da, ja da ja da jing jing jing." The "verse" of sorts is self-referential: "That is a funny little bit of melody/ It's soothing and appealing to me." What Jess sings on this track is a result of the phenomenon of "telephone;" she picked this tune up in New Orleans and began singing the lyrics with much more suggestive undertones: "First I'm gonna play you a melody/ I'll play it for you if you play it for me."
Track Name: Pauvre ‘tit Johnny Voulais Danser (Johnny Can't Dance)
Pauvre ‘tit Johnny voulais danser
Pauvre ‘tit Johnny peux pas danser
Il as essayé, Il as essayé
Mais pauvre ‘tit Johnny peux pas danser

Tout les samedi soir il allais à les soirées
Pour guetter tout les filles danser
Il as essayé, Il as essayé
Pauvre ‘tit Johnny peux pas danser
