TOTW Dec 13 2019: Henry King's Reel
For the Tune of the Week, 12/13/19, Henry King (d. 1856 - 1914) is the many-great grandfather of the talented composer, Trevor Stuart, who passed away but is survived by his brother Travis. They honored their ancestor and educated us a bit about their family history (you can read the liner note in the TOTW thread). The tune has a familiar first part and is then new to me. I chose cello banjo to make the fingering easier in a tuning equivalent to double C.

Lovely melody, and the low register sounds great. I don’t believe that your nimble fingers ever age. Jealous!

Thanks, Rick. Secret, Greg: play more slowly.
