Up Down and Around is Far Away written by Pete Jung
This tune was written by Pete Jung in 1985 after a dawn dance in Bratteboro. "I wrote it for a particular woman who has an enchanting but elusive quality—that was what I was trying to convey. All I got out of this deal was the tune.." This tune and quote was taken from The Waltz Book by Bill Matthiesen on page 21. Bill has 2 volumes of waltz books with great tunes which can be ordered from Bill Mathiesen, 33 Stormvie Road, Lanesboro, Ma 01237 (413) 442-9172. Address and numer in back of his books.
Goes Great With
This tune is a wonderfully dark waltz that pairs great with The Crested Hen waltz.
Please help! I need to contact Pete Jung (author of Far Away)
At one time I had Pete Jung’s email address, and I’ve lost it now. I need to contact him desperately.
If anyone has his email address, please let me know!

= “Far Away” ~ by Pete Jung & b minor
Correction ~ Key signature: b minor
"Far Away" by Pete Jung ~ the melody’s earlier origins, rather than "Dave’s Place" or any of the several other tags it has picked up over time…
The Fiddler’s Companion ~ Andrew Kuntz
FAR AWAY. American, Waltz. USA, New York. B Minor. Standard tuning. AA’BB. Composed in 1985 by Pete Jung (Kingston, N.Y.), who said: “I wrote this while playing the mandolin, on the way back home from a Brattleboro (VT) Dawn Dance, at about 7 A.M. I wrote it for a particular woman who has an enchanting but elusive quality—that was what I was trying to convey.” The melody has become quite popular and pops up from time to time at sessions. Matthiesen (Waltz Book 1), 1992; pg. 21. CCF2, Cape Cod Fiddlers – “Concert Collection II” (1999). Maggie’s Music, Ceoltoiri ‑ "Silver Apples of the Moon." Wild Asparagus ‑ "Tone Roads" (1990). Conor Keane – “Oidhreacht” (appears as “Nicholas Quemener’s Waltz”—Quemener is with the group Arcady).

Tulla Set Dance
Nice mazurka I heard years ago - probably has another name to it.

“The Far Away Waltz” or “Up Down and Around”
It’s called "Up Down and Around" or "The Far Away Waltz" composed by Pete Jung, and it’s a waltz rather than a mazurka.
Far Away, X:4
This is the printed copy we use in our sessions in Columbia, Missouri. Though all similar, I like it a bit more than the other settings and it includes harmonization. Enjoy.
This tune went beautifully paired with the third setting of A Bruxa https://thesession.org/tunes/4194
A Bruxa followed by Far Away. Two dark and beautiful Bm waltzes
Far Away, X:5 with apologies the Stiamh!
Here’s a setting from our own Stiamh Ionas, taught on C#/D box on a Youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tEa9BVfpmc . Apologies if I missed (or messed) anything in the transcription. This is apparently an old Montreal session setting notable for the extended B part with first and second endings, reserving the "2 bars of hemiola" for the very end.
I remember hearing this tune and seeing transcriptions of it years ago and in hasty judgement assuming that the hemiolas (I always thought the word referred to a medical condition) resulted from confusion about how to notate or play series of 8th notes in waltz time. Steve makes a convincing case that the effect is intentional, and I’ve tried to reflect that in the transcription.
Ending that last hemiola series in bars 13-14 of the B part seems to gets handled in a variety of ways, some of which work better than others. To get the true "hemiola effect" each group of three 8ths should correspond to a chord. The most obvious chord progression is |Bm A | G A| Steve plays bar 14 "dBG c#BA" against chords G and A. Several online transcriptions have it written as dBA cAE, which works fine with the same chords. I find myself playing dBG c#AG, implying an A7 chord and leading nicely into the next measure. I’ve also seen at least one instant of dBG c#AF#, which would seem to beg for an F#m chord instead of the last A. My least favorite, seen in several transcriptions is dBG dBG with repeated G chords, which seems to fall a bit short of the the full effect.

Just made a learning video in Bm, using MuseScore. Feedback welcome.

Re: Far Away
I know this is an old thread… but… does anyone have any contact info for the composer, Pete Jung? I’m hoping to get copyright permission to include Far Away in a traditional (paper!) tunebook that I’m putting together. Thanks.
Re: Far Away
The Crested Hens (Les poules huppées) mentioned as a "waltz" is in fact a "bourrée à trois temps" (three beats bourrée) composed by French Hurdy-Gurdy player Gilles Chabenat, played slowly like a waltz by Lunasa (I think)
