Angeline The Baker, X:2

As played at the Golden Guinea pub session, Bristol (UK).

Although the standard key for this tune is DMaj, for some reason it’s normally played in GMaj in this session.


Nice Version - Thanks

Originally by Stephen Foster

Angelina Baker was written by the 1850s American songwriter Stephen Foster. Here’s a link to a rendition of his original:

My friend does a nice, slow rendition of that on clawhammer banjo, and I accompany on fiddle. We then switch to the bluegrassy version posted by Mix, which is much better known these days. That set is lots of fun for the players and the listeners.

X:3 - the audio is not playing. Some snag there?

Audio - played about with the ABC and it looks as if the audio player cannot handle unisons (e.g [A2A2]). So removed them and it seems to play
