Re: Falls Of Richmond

This is not a barndance. It is an Old-Time reel. Some people also call it the Fall of Richmond, and there is a bit of discrepancy on whether it’s "Falls" or "Fall" of Richmond.

You also play it as follows:
AA BB CC BB

You play the B part after the C part. That’s just how it works, because it’s an OT reel and that’s how it’s been played.

Falls Of Richmond, X:2

A more Old-Timey version of the tune. An easier tune for banjo and mandolin. I strongly recommend it. It’s awesome.
It’s also a classic for clawhammer banjo.
