Mike Byers Musical mistakes? (41) Musical mistakes? 18 May 01


A few years ago my friend M was invited to play for a large group of women in Atlanta, Georgia. She's an accomplished fiddler but not, unfortunately, a student of musical history. Wanting to play something with a local reference, she found a tune and yes, you guessed it, she picked "Marching Through Georgia." At the end of her performance she couldn't understand why nobody expressed any appreciation whatsoever. In fact, the audience seemed downright hostile. As she was leaving, the woman who had been her host said, "Honey, some people around here don't much care for that tune."

Similar stories, anyone?
