The Spirit Of The House

Sounds like something very old but is a modern composition by fiddler Becky Pringle, who was from of Kansas City. It’s the clean-up melody on Trimble’s "Heartland Messenger" trilogy, and memorable for alternating between low / spooky A minor feel on the A-part, and a lighter D in the B-part.

The Spirit Of The House, X:2

A little more easy to read……
