The Old Folks at Home

The Old Folks at Home

This tune is part of the following collections:

A hugely popular song written by Stephen Foster in 1851. In spite of the fact that Foster had never seen the Suwannee river - or indeed never even visited Florida - it was chosen as Florida's state song in the 1930s. The setting above is based on the way Todd Baio sings the song on YouTube.

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