Silver Belle

This is from a recording by Canadian fiddler Patti Lamoureux which you can hear on her web-site, http://www.pattilamoureux.com/fr_home.cfm. She plays it as the second tune in a medley preceded by Golden Slippers in the key of A major.

I haven’t found much information about this tune, which resembles the march-like Canadian tune Maple Sugar, but it would be great played at a contra dance.

This tune was originally published as sheet music by Percy Wenrich in 1910.
