Pursuing my oddball interest in the music of Tin Pan Alley composer Kerry Mills, here is "At a Georgia Camp Meeting," played on a 30 button C/G Anglo.

 

https://dl.dropboxus...ampMeeting1.MP3

 

Mills is best known for the song "Meet Me in St. Louis" and the tune "Redwing," popular among contra dance musicians but composed as a novelty song about an "Indian maid."  So far I've learned Whistling Rufus, The Kerry Mills Barn Dance and Old Heidelburg in addition to Georgia Camp Meeting.  And in a stroke of weird coincidence, I was asked to play Meet Me in St. Louis at a recent funeral.

 

A strange musical detour for a Morris and English ceilidh musician, but I find this music incredibly appealing and fun to play.

 

Constructive feedback always appreciated.

Good job!  And you changed key for the Trio (as you should).
