Thread Name: Lyr Add: Ballad of Frankie Silver
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: BALLAD OF FRANKIE SILVER
Joe, the clickie I gave will give you not only Midi, but ABC, SongWright, Postscript, and Lilypond- whatever all those are. In addition, Penny whistle and Dulcimer tab are available as clicks. What more could anyone want except a singer to come to your door?
I can't get the DT Midi to come up right now. I noticed on a thread of tunes wanted, someone, Mrzzy(?) noted that the Midi was faulty.
There are Silver family reunions every year, and Stewarts attend. No one knows how the murder occurred. Sharyn McCrumb, in her novel, suggests the husband, drunk and belligerent, threatened the baby and Frankie.
It is not clear from McCrumb's book, but the longer version may be her revision and subject to ©
Through Google, pictures of the sites associated with the crime, and notices about a play, a musical suite, a dance version of the story, a cd and other goodies are available.
