From the playing of the Wrigley Sisters on Hulderland CD Trax 148 . It is played dotted.Otherwise author unknown
The "B" that is the final note of the first and fifth measures should be an octave lower. It’s a good tune - the version I know is more syncopated in the second section.
Nice tune, but I was just wondering if it was you intention to have the B-section a bar longer than the A-section?
Apologies yes the B’s refered to shold be an octave lower…and bar 7 of the B music should be deleted ….too much ale when typing up!!

Re: Shannandoah Falls
This is one tune that I’ve tried on the fiddle, quite satisfying to play and not too hard. Is the title re that same Shannandoah of the song (Away I’m bound to roam ‘cross the broad Missouri). Falls of the Missouri? Shannandoah - Indian chief in the song.
Wrigleys’ version is not too much like the version I play.
