Nice.  Is that from the Kate Van Winkle Keller trio of tune books?

If not, I'd be interested in another source that I might not know about.

I like it! A very popular dance of the period. And sounds great on this instrument. I think the only cotillion I have learned is the "Flying clouds cotillion," a reference to the beautiful gowns worn by the ladies. I have to learn this. Thanks Mark!

"Flying Clouds Cotillion"?  I know "Flying Cloud Gallop"  and "Flying Cloud Schottische" but always associated them with the clipper.  Tom, what's the date and source for "Flying Clouds Cotillion"?

Yes, Al, I picked up the Keller volumes in Colonial Williamsburg - love that place!

Great early tune Mark: Well played. It has a phrase, similar to "Tail of my Coat"
