At the Leatherman’s Loop in 2012 Jeff Main, the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation park superintendent, wrote “The Leatherman Song” in a burst of creativity and inspiration during the Loop event and performed it for the first time at the post-Loop gathering of volunteers that afternoon.
Jeff’s lead guitar was backed by John Lawrence and the Leathermen band who performed with fiddle, stand up bass, and rhythm guitars — and cheered by an enthusiastic crowd of Loop volunteers.
Here is a video recording of the premiere of this now classic piece (may take a bit of time to load up):
