Folding Down The Sheets

I’ve been playing this great tune for a long long time - used to play it in an old time band in Edinburgh. I got it from a seminal LP by the Hollow Rock String Band who, if I remember correctly, got it from Henry Reed.

Re: Folding Down The Sheets

Well, I recently posted the cd "Hollow Rock String Band" Traditional tunes under RECORDINGS. It is the one recording that makes me get up and hop around. Got it from the CD and book sale at the Library of Birmingham, not familiar with much traditional dance music of US. It was a good find (and only £1).

Susan, I think I got my copy from a sale at the record library near where I lived in Edinburgh, except it was a 12" vinyl record! Still got it, and it’s a great album!
