Snowflake Breakdown

Learned from my teacher, Carol Monaco. Modulates to Bb for 2 bars in part B, which makes it weird to accompany at first, but a nice intermediate tune for violin.


This tune was written by Canadian fiddler Wally Traugott decades ago. It was a popular "hot" tune for fiddlers such as Ward Allen and Don Messer.
