Old Time Music

The Rose In The Mountain

This tune comes from John Salyer (1892-1952) of Magoffin Co., KY, recorded in 1941 at home on the kitchen table by his sons, Glen and Grover. It may have originally been a march, but John plays it as a very fast breakdown. The first part may be related to “Rose On the Mountain” in Knauff’s Virginia Reels (1839). (Titon) Mark Uilleann Pipes and Chris fiddle: adae.
