Lost Indian & Snappin' Bug

Lost Indian

This tune is part of the following collections:

Both of these tunes come from an American collector, Samuel Bayard (1908-1997), who collected fiddle tunes in Pennsylvania from the 1920s up to the 1960s. Bayard noted that Lost Indian came from a Scottish tune originally (Crowdie, Three Times Crowdie in One Day), while he thought that Snappin’ Bug was derived from the hymn There Is a Happy Land.

This set is part of my Old Time Collection Collection of tunes; for others, check out the Old Time Collection Index.
