An item of interest.

Dancing Queen writes: Some time ago I read in a small section of the paper about a song that I love. There is of course many lovely versions, sometimes slow or sometimes a little faster. No matter what tempo or version, I just love the song. It is called "When you and I were young Maggie". I found out that it was originally a poem by a Canadian teacher called George Washington Johnson. Maggie was his pupil with whom he fell in love with and married in 1864. It was also published in 1864 in a collection entitled Maple Leaves. It was set to music by James Butterfield and was first recorded in 1905. This knowledge I read in the Advertiser and thought that some people who love the song maybe interested in its history. I play the Clawhammer version but have since heard it played by so many other instruments other than the Banjo. I just love it.
A Maggie fan, Lesley.

That's real nice and interesting Lesley. A good song is always a good song.
Good to see you at Sunday's OT Jam. You played Liza Jane well.
