CATHARSIS. American, Reel. G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. Composed by Amy Cann, a fiddler and music teacher from Putney, Vermont, who told Susan Songer she wrote the tune in ten minutes one night instead of making a phone call "and saying something I'd later regret to someone I cared about very much." The tune is popular with New England contra dance musicians.
