View Full Version : Theme song to "Evening Shade"

Apr-14-2005, 4:10pm
The TV show, Evening Shade, opened with a lovely waltz played on the violin. I believe it was the first season or so, then the theme changed. Could someone tell me the name of the piece. I played it from memory, (15 years or so)at last night's folk session and it has generated a bit of interest. I would love to find the music for it.

Let me know if you can help out with this song. Thanks

I dug deeper to answer my own question. It was written for the show by Craig Stuart Garfinkle. I had assumed that it was a traditional American piece. It can be downloaded fron sites about the show, it is really a worthy piece.

I can't seem to find a site with a download for it.

Can you post a link?

Thanks - that worked.

Bears a certain resemblance to Ashokan Farewell, IMHO.

Yes it does, I've a;ways thought it was a nice piece.

Did you find the tab for it?

Just been playing it by ear. I havent played it for a while and I drifted off the exact tune a bit, back on now that I downloaded the theme.

My ear is horrible. Been working on improving it, but it's
like spit in the ocean.

Don't feel bad, I can't do a thing with TAB. Not much more with Notation.

No problem with Tab. My problem lies with "talent"! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif
