The Ninth Annual National Carry A Tune Week will be held October 4 – 10, 2009

The Ninth Annual National Carry A Tune Week will be held October 4 – 10, 2009.
Sponsored by The Tune Lovers Society, this annual survey of favorite tunes chosen by Internet readers was begun as a way of remembering those lost from the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001 .
Since 2001, the event has grown to a nationwide response with over 250 tunes chosen, covering a broad range of music styles from America ’s past.
You don’t need to be a singer or an instrumentalist to take part, but musicians are especially encouraged to participate. All you need is the willingness to look back and select up to 9 of your favorite American tunes.
