For enthusiasts of early banjo
From G. P. Knauff’s Virginia Reels, circa 1839, as arranged for the banjo and published by Mark Weems, 2019. www.earlybanjotraditions.com
I long thought "Santa Anna's Retreat from Cerro Gordo" merely tacked the title on to an existing tune. Does it seem to be from the same "tune family" as "Lady of the Lake"? Are there any earlier Scottish or Irish tunes from that "tune family"?
Hmm. I thought I responded but perhaps I forgot to "Add Comment". Yes, although "Lady of the Lake" is a prominent fiddle tune title, I never was able to get it in my head, probably because the tune always seemed to be different. I've always thought that sheet music, with its' short window of time for sales, likely had publishers taking advantage of current events to peak people's interest and deprive them of a bit of their money, thus slapping a new title with a current event reference onto an existing tune and marketing it as though an original.
LOL, first thing I thought was "Ducks on the Pond"...
Good tune, nicely played!
I dunno. Even though I'm retired, Spring is still not a good time for me to be away from home. I tend to do most of my travelling in the Fall. I'm not sure why that is...but it kept me from AEBG when they moved it back from Sept. to June/July.
I stayed at the new venue last fall after that Rally's failure. I thought it was comfortable and provided a good base of operations for side trips to area museums.
Marc, you have imbedded migration behaviors.
LOL, I seem to have it backwards. I should go North in the spring...
