Welcome to the Great Groove Band music page for our 2022 summer programs at Old Songs and Philadelphia Folk Festivals.
Old Songs rehearsals are Friday 3:00-4:30 pm, Saturday 9-11 am and Sunday morning 9-10:30 am at the Carriage House/Area 2.
Philly rehearsals are at the Lobby Stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10 to 11:50. Please arrive promptly so we can squeeze as much rehearsal time in as possible.

- Bound for South Australia – sea chanty – acappella – no instrumental

We will not use sheet music on stage. This page is designed to help participants prepare but we review everything at the festival. Even if you missed this download page, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you learn everything by ear at the festival, even the lyrics to the French song!
Save a nice outfit for the Sunday afternoon concert. Bring extra strings and reeds just in case! A music stand is not necessary.
