Up this week is another lovely little tune that was not familiar to me until it was requested by Breakthrough Banjo member Linda R.
A little digging reveals it was popular amongst Revolutionary War era soldiers, so it’s colonial origins are perhaps fitting on this day after Thanksgiving.
It’s an instantly likable tune (the descending run in the B part reminiscent of the chorus to the Christmas carol “Angels We Have Heard on High”), and not too difficult to pick up, so one I could see easily catching on in a jam.
