Well played! This one will remain in the far-back pages of Buckley for me.

Wow. What a tune!

This brings up the question of the reference to a kettle drum.  Would a kettle drum have been used in some of these tunes supposedly intended for a dance/polka setting?  Drums are pretty traditional in dance music after all.  Are there any members here who are knowledgeable in mid 1800s American use of drums in popular/folk/dance music?
