Re: Poll for Song a Week Social Group Week #161
If, "The Falls of Richmond" don't make the cut, can we try again? I love this modal tune and know two of the parts pretty well. Just haven't mastered the whole tune, which some play with three, four or five parts.
Interesting sidebar to this tune, it has nothing to do with Richmond, Virginia, the falls of the James River in Richmond, Virginia or the fall of Richmond during the Civil War. It's a land-grab story of a railroad company in West Virginia as it coursed along a river and ultimately encroached onto private land (where there happened to be a water fall).
Or so I'm told. . .
