Thread Name: American Revolution Music Questions
Subject: Amer. Rev. Music Questions

Reynaud and I will be playing an American Revolution re-enactment next month. We'll be playing fiddle, hammered dulcimer, guitar, pennywhistle and recorder. We've got a mess of tunes, and we've got some questions...

1) Is the Gaspe Reel of the right vintage to be played at this kind of event?

2) A list of appropriate tunes included The Foggy Dew, but we're wondering if it's the one about the Wild Goose Rebellion or the one about the "bachelor airy and young"--can somebody tell us which?

3)We're playing civilian entertainers, not military--so any suggestions you might have about instruments/music would be helpful.

As always, Mudcats are the best!
