Thread Name: Origins: Bright Morning Star
Subject: Origins: Bright Morning Star
I am trying to research the origin of Bright Morning Star. What I am really looking for is proof that it was first composed before 1922. I have searched numerous databases, but haven't come up with any concrete proof. From what I have found, it is a traditional Appalachian Folk song. Does anyone have any other helpful information? Thanks!
