An alternate and fancier version of the popular Appalachian hoedown, sourced from Alan Jabbour. This setting was used as the basis for the pipe solo on The Piper in the Holler album, and has also been published in ‘An Appalachian Collection’ tune book. In the common key of A-modal, with chord symbols included. (NB: The grace-notes that appear in this sheet music have since been updated to provide more emphasis on the backbeat, in imitation of old-time fiddling styles.) For a simpler, more standard version of this tune, see here.
