Ok Mudpeoples....

   I have been asked to play my fiddle on the very first day of my student teaching...something from the 1890s....any thoughts? I'm searching too but would gladly accept any suggestions! I'm looking for something somewhat upbeat for the kids (ages 10-12). WOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Michelle

Ok, thanks!

I have a list started and think this will do for now...will Google more later. If you can think of any off the top of your head, feel free to list them!

Here's what I have...
Bonaparte's Retreat
Betty Likens
Cluck Old Hen
Cripple Creek
Fishers Hornpipe
Flop Eared Mule
The Girl I Left Behind Me
Jawbones
Old Joe Clark
Old Dan Tucker
Sally Ann
Shady Grove
Soldiers Joy

I can play most of these...some well, some need work...as always! :)

From slightly before (1882): Rough on Rats. Cute song extolling the virtues of a rodenticide.

Do they need to have originated in the 1890's or just have exited during the 1890's (i.e. can they pre-date the 1890's)?

Grr, looks like my follow-up post got lost in the ether. So quickly reconstructing:

The cat came back (1893)
I don't want to play in your yard (1894)
I've been working on the railroad (1894). The tune, "Eyes of Texas", is older.
At a Georgia campmeeting (1897). But only suitable as an instrumental.

For most, see www.pdmusic.org.

Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay
Sidewalks of New York
Bicycle Built for Two (Daisy, Daisy...)
Humoresque
all originated in the 1890s.

Just as a quick update, I did play on my first day of student teaching and have played several times since! The students love it and the students are asking for more!!! :) We are focusing on the 1890s for this month so anything else that you think of to add to my playlist would be most appreciated!

The music can be from the 1890s or songs that were popular during that time period but not necessarily written then.

Thanks again!

Michelle

I believe "Dolly Grey" dates from this period Certainly popular in the 2nd Boer War (1899-1902), I believe it was also sung in the Spanish-American War of 1898.

Hi LilyFestre

I can't think of anything else at the minute but it looks like you've got plenty & more than half of what you listed in your post above are not only tunes but also songs why not sing them while playing if you know them. Easy for me to say being a singer & not a fiddler.
Good luck with your 1st day

Barry

Ever try to sing with a fiddle tucked under your chin, Barry? Good way to drop a nice fiddle. Most fiddlers that sing, sing a cappella, and fiddle in between verses. Every once in a great while, you'll see a fiddler who's able to sing while playing.

This isn't really part of the topic.

Hi Neighmond.
Is it possible that you could email me?

I'm interested in getting the song of Lost John that you recorded.
(The one by the man at the lodging house?)

My email is alx@postmaster.co.uk.

Thanks,
Alex.

Eliza Carthy sings and fiddles at the same time. It's possible.
